A couple weekends ago, I pulled out Lotta Jansdotter's book "Simple Sewing" and made another set of dish towels and pot holders.
But instead of using her cup applique, this time I used a little bird applique. I used the same pattern that I made for a skirt for my niece last summer.
I organized a little assembly line and a couple of hours later, I had 3 dish towels and 3 potholders!
I was really pleased with how they all turned out.
The fabric is from Ikea.
This is the only photo I took before I wrapped them up in pretty paper and sent them on their ways!
They're all gifts for my sister and 2 sisters in law's birthdays! (Even though one is quite belated!)
