So let me tell you something. For our wedding we received beautiful white face/hand towels. About two months in I made a realization that white towels and men do not mix. :-P I love 'em you know but you just can't keep stuff clean. Love ya boo! Now keep in mind that it has been almost 3 years now and we have yet to buy different towels.....Cause we are just cheap like that.
Well the last time I made a trip to Jo-Ann's Fabric store they happened to have one of their 50% off the clearance section sales. That = my kind of deal. I found this lovely purple terry cloth that came out to $2 / yard. So of course, I snatched up 2.5 yrds. That turned out to be just enough for 6 face towels and 4 hand towels. I just traced out the size I wanted from towels we already had; adding just a smidge for a hem. Then I zigzagged the whole edge, folded that over just once and stitched it into place. And TA DA! 10 new man proof towels for 5 bucks. Woohoo. They don't look completely store bought on close inspection but we are happy with the result anyway!
Its just too bad they didn't have turquoise on sale. ^_^
On a total random note: I started a rug recently. It is supposed to be different shades of yellow and green. This is how it looks so far. Yay!
