Man Towels

Yesterday I visited Brandi, from Rosie's. I got to see her latest creation, her adorable little kids, and her new stash of vintage patterns. She taught me how to use elastic thread (although it still isn't working on my machine) and we talked all things handmade. I enjoyed myself so much, what a doll. She told me that ever since she made Madi one of her little bath towel sets all Mad's wants to do is take a bath. I told her that she had inspired me to make Nate and Big B each a "man towel" (you know the kind that wrap around the middle like a...dare I say...skirt).

So, that's what I did.
(They wouldn't be caught dead modeling, sorry!)

They are super simple, another one of those "if you can sew a straight line you can sew this" projects . I bought two $3.00 towels from you know where. I cut B's in half length wise, since he's a bigger guy (he's got the body of an NFL player) and for Nate's I just cut the end off of the other towel.

I surged the raw edges, put a strip of hook and loop tape on both of the top corners and sewed a big monogram on the corner. And there you have it.....A MAN TOWEL.
