A Project I’m Working On.

What a beautiful day today was!  Our temperature was in the upper 50s.  Aaaah, I am looking forward to spring. 

Today I will be linking with Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for Met Monday and Kimba @ http://asoftplace.net for DIY Day Tuesday.  Please visit their blogs for other participant’s inspirational photos. 

So today I decided to take out my sewing machine and do some sewing.  I had to dust it off a little because it’s been a while.  It’s been a while since I’ve used it.  *blushing here*  A sweet friend suggested to me that I should buy the Janome 405 sewing machine and that’s the one I bought for me. :)  I really need to put it to more use though. 

I am changing the colors in my front bathroom and went shopping for towels.  Decorative towels can get expensive, can’t they?  I got this bright idea to make my own decorative towels and found some inexpensive towels at Target.  The colors I chose are Brown and Aqua.  I don’t think this picture is showing the true colors.  IMG_0076 (800x600) 

I found a beautiful fabric at Hobby Lobby that matches the aqua towels.  So I cut some strips and sewed it on to the edge of the towels.  IMG_0077 (600x800) 

I may add a decorative tassel to the bottom of the towels.  Hmmm?IMG_0083 (800x600)

Don’t look at the stitching close up please! I am a newby in the world of sewing. :)IMG_0079 (600x800) 

I need to look for a shower curtain and some accessories for the bathroom.  I think I will make a little valance in the same fabric as well.  What do you think?   Oooh!  I will be sewing like a pro before you know it. :) 

To everyone that follows my blog…who read my blog. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.   Thank  you for stopping by my blog.

Blessings,

Sandra

What a great idea! I don't sew at all. Buttons are a challenge for me, so I really admire anyone who can do it!

I surely do not know how to sew, but wished I did. However, my bathroom colors are brown and aqua. I love the color combination!

These look fantastic, Sandra! I think you did a great job! What a good idea to dress up your towels with fabric; I love the pattern you chose, too.

Sandra, you did a wonderful sewing job. And I love the color combo as well as the beautifully matched fabric you sewed on the towels to make them a one-of-a-kind piece!
Good for you. I love your idea about the shower curtain too. Please post and take pictures.
