Drop Cloth Towels

 How’s the week treating you so far? My week has been pretty hectic. Mainly at work. We are going through a system change on top of an office renovation. And it’s driving me to drink ;)


Anyhow…over the weekend I spent some quality time with my sewing machine. Together we made some pretty cute drop cloth towels.

I made 7 towels and still have more than half of one drop cloth (4ft x 15ft) remaining. The drop cloth itself cost $15 + tax.

I used transfer paper made for fabric to get my designs. I purchased the transfer paper at my Local Staples for $10.99 + tax. Later on I found that same pack at Wal-Mart for under $9. Go figure.

This was a fun project that I enjoyed watching evolve.

A simple double-sided stitch was used all around the 24” x 18” pieces to create a polished look. The double-sided stitch helps prevent the edges from fraying in the future.

I found the graphics over at *The Graphics Fairy LLC*. If you are ever in the market for some awesome graphics, head over there and you'll spend quite a while browsing through all of them!

I’m happy with how they turned out. They are a nice addition to my bathroom.

I kept three and gave four as Mother’s Day gifts. There is nothing better than a homemade gift right??
