LOOK WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH DISHTOWELS

You can make any dishtowel look special with dimensional embroidery. Above, it looks fresh and clean with the adding of the 30s fabrics. Why not use a binding and fabric to match your kitchen or the kitchen of that lucky person who will receive it as a gift. You can get the patterns at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

This project bag is so cute and so easy to make. Just take a dishtowel, add a little rickrack and an eye-catching button to pizzazz it up, and you have a clever gift in no time. Patterns are at the shop.

I saw a pattern when I was perusing the Quilting Board and fell in love with it! You can get the instructiions for the Hidden Wells Blocks here. You can see pictures of the many variations here

Until next time,
Caroll

Those are TOO darling - I collect vintage linens but never know what to do with them! I can't use them, hubby and two teenage boys would ruin them in no time. This is a great idea!
