For Girl's Night Out this past month, the theme was "Something Western".  I really like western things, and I knew I wanted to make something, but I was having a hard time thinking of something I could make for under $5, which was the spending limit.  Finally, I realized that I had some Michael Miller pony print fabric left over from the crib set I made for my sister's new baby (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349321.msg4072160#msg4072160).  So, I decided to accent some kitchen towels with the pony print fabric. 

At the Girl's Night Out, they did a white elephant gift exchange, and I drew one of the highest numbers (meaning that I got to pick/steal after a majority of people had opened their gifts).  There was a really cute horseshoe coaster set that I decided to steal from another lady.  My towels had been opened by the lady who sat next to her, so she stole the towels from that lady.  The lady whom the towels were stolen from wasn't paying attention and was surprised and upset when the towels were stolen from in front of her.   Grin  Her reaction was really funny!  It made me feel good that the lady who opened the towels like them that much and that everyone else liked them enough to have them be one of only two gifts to get stolen.

I got 3 towels from the local dollar store for $4.  Two of them, I folded in half and then added the crocheted part to them.  The other towel, I simply added the accent fabric so that they could use it on either a towel rack or on the counter beside the sink.  Two of the towels are shown in this picture.
