Hey everyone, it was raining here in NorCal today. While Jaloux was styling her client.  I decided to keep the crafting going today. I went to Costco at the beginning of the month for some household items and grabbed a 24 pkg of washtowels.  I embellished 12 for my Bigmama's house. I used scraps of cotton fabric and ribbon from my stash to embellish the 1in bland detail.

I know my grandmother is going to like these.  She really wants some body towels.  Guess I will be purchasing and embellishing those as well.  I have to make sure they are not white.  So what do you think? Grin

I think they turned out very nice! it's great that they're different, so they won't be mixed up.  I think body towels to match would be nice. Maybe do two main colors?

That is whats up. Costco also sales the handcloths in a pkg of 12 or 24 for about the same price. I am going to machine embroider the others and sale them at a local craft show. These are addictive.  I also go to Marshall/Ross and get a set of 4-8 for about $5-$7 to embellish. I check their clearance section for the BIGGEST BANG FOR MY BUCKS!! Grin
