summer stitching .....

Here's another of the pieces that I stitched over the summer.
  I wanted it to look old and tried my hand at antiquing. 
 It's a design by Niky.

There seems to be a shortage of hand towels at the cabin
so I recycled a small bath towel into two hand towels.  I cut the towel in half and added some fabric trim to the cut edges.  To make it a totally recycled project I didn't use new fabric for the trim but used a piece from an old shirt.  
Interestingly, this project gave me a lot of satisfaction.

Sweet little stitchery! And what a great idea to make the two towels from one.

Well Done on recycling your hand towels, it does feel good to reuse and even better when supplies are in your own cabin!

Very cute tag, Kate, and I love recycling in any form--those towels look great and will be very useful :)
