UPDATE BELOW-Cuties, here are a few more Kitchen Boas I made for the trip. Just showing the embroidered end, as they are draped over the top of the door.



You see the towel in the center? I thought as the design was so high and the towel was white (I guess the bought one is like that so you can use the bottom half better for drying) that it left too much blank white space. So.o. I wanted to cut a length of fabric to go across for trim. However, as I was using scrap fabric, my piece wasn't long enough so I pieced it. I am sure you can see as I opened it up, but not too bad, if I say so myself (lol) matching the stripes-


UPDATE-I have put the directions for the Towel Boa in Community/Sewing. It also has the link for the design of the rolling pin.

You always seem to get so much done, maybe I don't use my time wisely.
They look great, and will make a nice gift.

Oh, yes my dear, you far outshine me, with things you get done.
I sure like my gift of this, the black towel on the other post. I said before, when I find some thing unique I always want to share with Cuties. I like being surprised with a post of something different myself, or others, can make too.
My daughter scolded me, because I guess I try too hard to think, of something 'different' for the SS this year. It was my first year to participate. By the time I did decide, I was afraid it may not have time to arrive. However, it did arrive WAY before dragonflyer received hers!-lol

These made me laugh! They are terrific! Great play on words. I'm not quite sure what the difference between a towel and a boa is. I've never heard that term used before. I liked how you got such a perfect stitchout on those green ones too. Did you use a topper on them?

Oh, I didn't scroll down far enough. Now I know what a boa is.

toogie by toogie 10 Jan 2018

Yes, I used a Water soluble stabilizer. I, glad you got to laugh. Everyone needs humor and sometimes in the kitchen.
