I made these for I Sew Cute, my partner in the Set of Tea Towels Swap Round 2. I used Takara Blythe names, but drew the dolls myself so they don't really look exactly like their namesakes. I took little bits from a lot of different sources and combined them all to make these patterns. I got the border and banner from Kittyzilla's Watchmen patterns on Flickr, I got the flowers inside the border on Retro Mama from one of the mandala patterns on Flossbox, the border around the 2 "Blythe" towels is from one of the Sublime Stitching books, the candy and the girly bits like the shoe and bag are from pics I found while googling.

So, let's get to the good stuff. First up we've got Dotty Dot:



Then the first of 2 Blythe towels:



Here's Retro Mama:



The second of the 2 Blythe towels:



Here's Candy Carnival:



And finally here's all 5 towels together:

Those are so very fantastic! I tried to pick a favourite, but I couldn't. I bet your partner loves them. I love the eyes- eyes are my own personal battlefield at the moment Smiley

Tee hee! So very cute. Very awesome indeed! Looooooooove 'em!

Love Blythe even though I find them vaguely creepy......I'm sure that has something to do with my cousin and her Blythe doll back in the day.  Cheesy
