I was on the HUNT for some RED items needed for another photo shoot…
Of course where do you go when you need FUN and CUTE things at a DECENT price…??
You go to…
I didn’t go out Looking or Needing dish towel’s ( I was looking for Dishes )
But if your at Home Goods going down EVERY isle is a MUST!!!!
And the moment I saw these ADORABLE Dish Towels I new INSTANTLY what I wanted to do with them… That is if I could find enough.. I FRANTICALLY began digging through ALL the Dish Towels on the Rack and Grabbed them up once I spotted one…. Then it was like a MOVIE moment… Just as my Hand reached for the LAST one another Hand came out of NO WHERE and Just Barely Grabbed my hand as she was reaching for the SAME towel….
She was a VERY sweet lady and said,
“Well, it looks like you WIN… ” okay now tell me if I didn’t feel bad… I felt like I was HOARDING all these Dish Towels
FOUR total… But it Felt VERY much that way when Two other Ladies come around the Corner and Spot these Dish Towels in my Cart and ask me if there is any more….
So REALLY this post should be called,
The Dish Towel Skirt that almost WASN’T!!
I came So VERY VERY close to handing out my Dish Towels to these ladies… But the BLOG must go on… So I left will all 5 Dish Towels in my Cart… Oh the 5th one is REALLY cute as well but was a Different design… They were eyeballing that one as well…
For this skirt I used Four Dish Towels
So here is what I did…
Place the Right Sides of your Dish Towels together and Sew
Even though these were ALL the Same Dish Towel… They were uneven and didn’t match up…. I made sure to get the Bottoms Matched up as best as I could….
HHHMMMM!!! I wonder if this why they are at Home Goods..??
After Sewing ALL your Dish Towels together Even Up the Top of your skirt
Using some Matching Linen I cut 2 strips 3.5 wide
( cut according to waist size and the width of waist band you would like )
Sew right sides together at top and turn and press On the bottom of the waist band turn edges in about 1inch being sure they are even and match up on both sides
Begin pinning your waist band in place
I decided to go with an Invisible Zipper… I only had this 12-14 in size on hand…so I shortened it so that the opening wouldn’t be so LONG
I finished with sewing my Zipper in place
And there you have it…
I LOVE it!!!!
