towel interlude

**I actually made this project before the “Academy” quilt, but never got around to typing anything up – enjoy**

Contrary to popular belief, I have a few friends.  Or at least my wife does.  Some of them have babies, and some of them buy houses.  In addition to some booze, I suggested to my wife that some custom dish towels might make a nice, useful house warming gift (I had just read an online tutorial about them!).  So off to Joann’s we went and the wife picked out some fabric she felt would appeal to our friends.

Turns out terrycloth sheds like a bitch! (and by “bitch” I of course mean the horrible little furry piss-monkey of a dog that I love quite fiercely but who sheds constantly) But aside from that it was a very straight forward project. Cut this, cut that, sew this, turn inside out, iron, repeat.  Check out the tutorial for REAL instructions – I thought it was well done.

I put a ribbon on the towels and off we went to a house warming party.  There’s nothing quite like knowing the project you put your time and effort into is going to end up a filthy rag;)
