I fell of the wagon ... but for a good cause

Yes, that's right, I broke my fabric diet this week. Yesterday I went to JoAnn's and picked up 2 1/2 yards of terry toweling and 1 1/4 yards of this pink polka dot fabric. I needed to test out a hooded towel pattern that we're using for Newborns in Need.

I also learned how to use the applique stitch on my machine to put this cute heart on the towel.

This set turned out pretty good, and fairly easy. The hardest part was making the bias cut binding and ironing it to make it easy to sew on. With the fabric I bought I should be able to make 3 towels and 3 washcloths.


  1. Pretty,pretty isn't it fun learning new stitches on your sewing machine?!

  2. Wow! These are gorgeous, so simple yet so effective.
