It is late-October, 2019 and I feel like time is flying by, faster and faster. You know the holiday drill, plan and create, event, family and friends, clean up, repeat. So, I was thinking of a decoration that does not need to be recreated for every festivity.
Preparing for a holiday has enough work to it AND, we all know who gets the honor of doing everything!! (Do you need a hint?) As a time saver, the most versatile, decorative item I could think of was toweling. Did you know that a towel has very long life? And, talk about sustainability, many of us use a towel (especially 100% cotton) until it is threadbare. (Then it goes to an animal shelter for further appreciation.)
Being general and festive for any holiday is an interesting idea. Here are my ideas (your mileage may vary).
Whew! That is a lot of ground to cover with some design magic. Here is my take on a design for all seasons. I used a Turkish Towel as the base and set up a little bit of an embellishment.
I chose a Turkish Towel because I did not have time to get the 'tea towels
' that are perfect for this project.
- 3 each 100% cotton tea towels.
- Towel size is 20.25″ x 27.75″
Hang your (several) towels in conspicuous places, tie a ribbon around each and garnish with something that represents the specific holiday.
Often, as a wander through Ann's great site, I find things that are 'outside the box' and I want to share this one with you. Denim is never out of style. From the 'High Fashion' to the 'ole fishing hole,' denim makes things unique and uncommonly innovative. Check it out.
With 5 stylish colors in each package, and 100% cotton, they are 18" by 58". You know all the ideas, but here are some for your consideration:
- Applique designs
- Accompany lace projects
- Use with Red, White or Black Work
- Gifts for Men, BFF and Family
- Incredible Patchwork Quilt
This is a purchase that will inspire you and give your work fun with a twist.
