Hi!

I made these using flour sack towels.  After screen printing the image, I embroidered a bit around them.  To make for a neater backside (no loose embroidery threads), I folded the towel in half and sewed it together (with rick-rack border).  So it ends up being a pretty thick towel, and I find flour sack towels are really good at soaking up water, very handy.

I hope I can give back a tenth of the inspiration I get from craftster!

I lol'd when I read the 'Super. Natural.' bit. It's hilarious, and the design makes it chic! Where do you get cloth flour sacks these days?

I get the flour sack towels in a 4-pack from Target.  Might not be the cheapest, I'm not sure.  But I do they work well  Smiley

What a good idea, the stitiching and printing go well together and the rickrack is a nice touch as well. Super indeed!  Smiley
