July 4th Towels





Besides paper crafting I also love to sew. I have been sewing on and off since I was 9 years old. Hey, I can still remember the first outfit I made. It was a shorts outfit. Top and shorts. I made it out of some cheep white fabric first and then made a second one out of a green material with trim. This was not only my first sewing project, but the first sewing project that I entered at the fair. I was so proud of that outfit. Through the years I have made many things, however some of the favorite things have been clothes (dresses) for my daughters, however they are getting to old and don't want Mom to make them cute outfits anymore. A couple of years ago I purchased a Sewing/Embroidery Machine and love to play with it. One of the things that I have done quite a bit of is dish towels. I enjoy taking the feed sack dish towel and dressing it up for the holiday or season. These make fun gifts for people. The set pictured is a fun Fourth of July patterns that I downloaded from the web for free. There are all kinds of free patterns out there if you are willing to take the time to look. I entered them in this years county fair so couldn't use them for the holidays this year, but can't wait to use them next summer. Thanks for lookng
