This one I also started two weekends ago after finding this ric-rack for 50 cents at JoAnns. It's such a pretty, lilac color!
|This DMC 155 seems to match the Ric Rack perfectly!|
A loooong time back, I found this picture on the internet. Unfortunatly, I don't remember whose blog or site it was from, but I loved the way the towel came to a point with the design in the center. After a bit of playing around with different shaped towels, I figured out how to make one.
|I cut a regular flour sack towel into a 17.5x17.5 square, then hemmed up the sides.|
I tacked on the ric-rack and eventually sewed it on by hand with DMC 155.
Then I had to decide which lilac pattern to use.
|I like this one, but it seemed a bit TOO fancy to go with the ric-rack.|
|This one seems just right (without the NH Lilac wording)|
I'll keep you posted on my progress!
