Look What I Just Made!

One of the things I wanted to try to make this Valentine's was little decorative towels...dish towels, bar towels, whatever you want to call them.


I found these white towels on clearance at Target and got some remnant fabric at Walmart, plus a little grosgrain ribbon, to embellish them. I traced on to the fabric cookie cutters to make the two different sizes of hearts and hit the sewing machine.

This is my first one, so it isn't perfect, but I'm sure happy with how it turned out. I tried be conscious of how the back would look as I was sewing. I think I did pretty well and the back looks fine. (I used white thread when I attached the ribbon. The contrast was cute.) What do you think?

Melissa, honestly, it is all about being able to risk some of your time and a $1 worth of material (including the towel)...I just decided I wanted to know how to do these things and so I'm teaching myself. I'm envious of my sister who is taking a sewing class...I'm probably doing all kinds of things "the hard way", but it is better than not doing them at all.
