Note to Self: More Towels Next Year


So my show over the weekend went really well. The weather was quite festive (snow!) and it really got me revved up for the holidays.

Every year my twin sis tells me: "You need to make more hand towels. They're great hostess gifts." So this year I made more -- what I thought was more than enough. In addition to the appliqued ones I featured a couple of posts ago, I also made these towels. They're recycled vintage linens and table cloths that I embellished with heat transfers.

Sure enough, sold out in about the first half hour. So this time I'm putting it in writing: more towels for 2010 Gifts for Yule show. I'll start scouting recycled linens today!

HI CAROLINE,
GREAT TOWELS, I AM GLAD YOUR SHOW WAS A SUCCESS. I LOVE GOING INTO MEDFORD AND BUYING VINTAGE TOWELS, AND SCARVES. AUNT CAROLINE AND I WOULD DO THAT A LOT WHEN SHE WOULD VISIT. JACKIE LOVES ALL THAT TOO. SHE MAKES THE NICEST VICTORIAN SACHETS. I BOUGHT MYSELF A NEW SEWING MACHINE, AND WANT TO GET BACK INTO SEWING. OH, BOUGHT MYSELF A CAMERA, NOW I CAN PUT REAL PHOTO'S IN MY BLOG TOO. TAKE CARE, YOU ARE A SWEETHEART, LOVE, AUNT RIZ

Those are great and I am not surprised they sold out so quickly. I may have to try that with some of my old linen tea towels that don't have anything on them. Great inspiration!
