Sew and Tell: vintage towels

As long as I had my ironing board and sewing machine all set up from yesterday’s scrappy pillow, why not dress up some plain white towels.

Decorative towels are fairly expensive at department or linen stores. Look for plain towels that are on sale at discount stores and add your own embellishments for a fraction of the cost.

For these towels, I used the edge of a vintage cutter table cloth with a pretty floral pattern and minty turquoise scalloped edge.

It’s amazing how fresh towels and a pretty bar of soap can change the feel of your bathroom. And at this cost, you can change out the look whenever you feel like it.
