Have you looked at the dishtowels at Anthropologie? They’re fairly yummy. Sweet little birds and flowers embroidered on cute patterned dishtowels, all for the low low prices of $18 – $24. hmmm. maybe not. So . . what to do? Make my own! :)
What do you think? I looove it.
I went searching for a cute design to embroider and came across Urban Threads. If you haven’t already checked them out – spend some time looking around their site. They have got some great, fun, quirky stuff for VERY low prices. Seriously. This pattern, for the large size, was $1.00. Thank you very much. I have a bunch of stuff saved as favorites, future projects to come.
Here’s a closeup of the embroidery –
The dishtowel came in a four-pack that I got on clearance (at the grocery store of all places) this winter. Four different colored dishtowels for $1.99. I’m kicking myself for not buying more. The fabrics I had in my stash. They’re Lila Tuellar fabrics, she designs for Moda. She’s got great fabrics and cute patterns too. And the embroidery is on a piece of linen I had. I frayed the edges of the linen and the fabric behind it – just to give it a little rustic-ness (is that a word?).
So my grand total, if I don’t count stash fabric (and who does) is $1.50. Is that awesome or what???
Now I have to decide if I’ll actually dry my hands on it. . . maybe it will be a “company” towel. haha.
