Skulls & Owls

The deadline for my Christmas Stocking Swap is rapidly approaching – where did the time go? I thought I had better kick my sewing into high gear and make the last, few items before it was time to send. One thing my partner had put on her wishlist is some fun, embellished towels… so here’s what I came up with:

The towel on the left is a fun “Knitty Gritty Quilt Pirate” print (skulls with scissors, I love it!), the towel in the middle is purchased from Joann’s over Halloween, and the end is the owl print that I’ve used throughout this swap on a multi-colored towel (I was amazed at how the colors matched). It’s been awhile since I’ve done something like this so I’ve forgotten how simple to make and how cute they turn out in the end. I’m thinking that I’ve got enough kitchen towels that are wearing out that I may have to make a few for myself!
