Over Christmas I came across an article in Country Living's holiday magazine, talking about sprucing up your powder room for guests. They showcased a few unique hand towels which led me to this. . .
. . . my pin-up girl towel. I found a piece of tightly woven cotton that I think used to be a duvet cover of some kind (it had snaps and ties along one edge). Obviously salvaged from another project, it had the perfect blend of worn but not worthless. I cut a piece 16" x 34". I hemmed the edges and added red rickrack to the short ends.
After a bit of searching I found the Apron Lady, EllynAnne Geisel, who contributed her expertise and pieces from her personal collection to the Country Living article on vintage linens. Go to her blog to see the original 1950s peek-a-boo towel that I was inspired by. Ms. Geisel has a treasure trove of linens that would make any girl swoon!

So I suppose I could make another six towels to complete this set, but I have new fabric for kitchen curtains. That is next up on the To Do List. My little gal here will have to hold up for more than just Friday!
