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.
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.
I may add a decorative tassel to the bottom of the towels. Hmmm?
Don’t look at the stitching close up please! I am a newby in the world of sewing. :)
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.
Sandra, the towels look beautiful! I think that fabric is awesome. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Sandra, your towels are gorgeous. I love that fabric and it will be stunning as a valance for the shower curtain too. You did a great job. I can't wait to see the finished bathroom. Hugs, Marty
Those are pretty! You did good! :)
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!
~WOW! How gorgeous Sandra! I do love the beautiful fabric.
Thank you for your kind words about my new healthy life. They mean so much to me my friend.
Blessings, ~Melissa :)
Love your towel redo. Those are gorgeous.
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.
