UPDATE BELOW-Hello Cuties! Have any of you ever seen these? I received one as a Christmas present and told my daughter mother in law, I think I will start making some. She said that was her idea for me, too when she bought it. They are called a Kitchen Boa. Of course the one on the right, black towel was my gift and I made the other.

If I had known about these BEFORE Christmas, my SS would have gotten this instead of
Have a great day/night where ever you may be-Toogie

UPdate- I have posted instructions of how I make these in Sewing. Look for the photo of this red one. Scroll down for more info in that post.

My first time seeing one too, Kay. I knew you would see this and I know you and Carolyn do a lot of towels. Just something different to spur us on!

My first time seeing one, too. Carmen, the lady that gave it to me, said she knew I could make some when I looked at it, so now all of us can. A gift that keeps on giving-lol

Not mine but thanks!

Very clever and useful.....I found an on line instruction sheet see link below

toogie by toogie 11d ago

This explains it simply enough. I guess I over explain, but also I thought it best Not to cut your towel, until After embroidery. I realized the one on your link isn't embroidered but maybe between my instructions and this link, Cuties can understand how simple it really is. Thanks for finding this for all of us.-Toogie

Toggie, You can never over explain. Thanks for the great instructions.

Thanks Vicki!

toogie by toogie 10d ago

The reason I say I over explain, is what may be simple for some, is what may not be so for others. We just have to help everybody and the ones that already know, well good for them! Glad you found it helpful.

by parkermom 11d ago

Let me add my name to those who want to learn about this. Those are so very clever and useful for people like me who can use up a roll of paper towels in non time!

It's all in the info in Sewing.

by kathymourie 11d ago

WOW!!! Toogie can I have your pattern? I think I will make these for Christmas this year. I had a hard time thinking of something to make this pass Christmas.

Hey Kathy, look in Community/Sewing. I just posted it. I know what you mean about not knowing what to make 'unique' for Christmas. I think I succeeded but it was stressful trying to hurry. You have plenty time if you start now, for this 2018 Christmas.

nice one..

Very good . Do you have a pattern???

toogie by toogie edited 12d ago

No, but if you're interested I did write up a pdf including two photos, with instructions 3 pages long. Thanks

raels011 by raels011 11d ago

Would really like it as I am always grabbing the tea towel

mrskiki by mrskiki 11d ago

Great idea. Can you post your instructions or must we PM you for them? Hugs. Nan

noah by noah 11d ago

sewdoctor by sewdoctor 11d ago

Yes Yes Yes.....Please and Thank you!

toogie by toogie 11d ago

I have posted the instructions of how I made mine in Community/Sewing for all to use. I may have over explained for seasoned sewers but if you need further explanation just ask, always here to help if I can.-Toogie

Yes, as you now know, this will be on my 'bus gift list'.

by bielie 12d ago

Great idea. Might make one for myself too;)

I thought they would be handy, as well. Seems like when you're working in the kitchen, you're always reaching for a towel.

by dragonflyer 12d ago

Very clever!
