I'd bought these tea towels a few months ago on sale in Ikea knowing they'd be a great source of cheap material for a project or two.



My mum had requested a peg bag and I thought this fabric would work rather well. The bonus of using a tea towel is careful cutting ensures the already finished edges can form the finished edges of the opening.

The teatowels were patterned at one end only so I used the patterned end for the reverse



Then used some of the left over patterned bits along with scraps to create the appliqued design on the front.



And I'm really pleased that's one present done and dusted and it's not even November :-D

I really like that - you did a great job, and good on you getting a Christmas gift done early!
