I know it’s not even Halloween yet, but I had to post about this Holiday craft feature spotted in the December 2015 American Patchwork Magazine edition. Once you’ve taken care of putting the finishing touches on your Halloween costume, you can keep the sewing machine charged and ready to stitch away to create some FESTIVE HOLIDAY TOWELS! Clothworks very own Kathleen, retired Customer Service extraordinaire, designed these versatile bath towels with fabric banding. Read more about the clever techniques she uses to apply the fabric bands on to colorful terrycloth towels to personalize them for the holiday season!
The December 2015 edition of American Patchwork & Quilting is on news stands now! So head to your local quilt shop or favorite fabric & sewing store to pick up a copy to fuel your sewing inspiration into the holiday season!
These personalized towels and tea cloths with their festive novelty fabrics are a signature gift item that Kathleen always includes in her beautifully curated gift bags. I am lucky to own several that I use around the house which always remind me of her lovely handmade attention to detail. Her pairing of fabric by Clothworks designer Dan DiPaolo from the Santa’s on His Way collection with the plush terrycloth in festive Christmas colors shown in these pictures here is definitely helping me embrace the holiday spirit!
