Handmade {Scrappy Tea Towels}

{Northern Cottage} Handmade tea towels

I’ve been busy in my sweat factory inspiring sewing/craft studio!! 

I’ve found that I adore making (and using) these scrappy happy shabby chic tea towels – hand towels.  I love me a pretty tea towel…like serious love!!

I especially ♥ these babies.   We ALL use towels in the kitchen….why not make them pretty, right?!

When I walk by one of these hanging from my dishwasher handle – I just sigh with contentedness (is that weird?)  I guess the simple things are really what makes me happy.

I love using these as GIFTS too.  They work wonderfully as the GIFT WRAP packaging as well. 
Just wrap around the present and tie with a pretty ribbon. 
BONUS - you get to use the packaging as part of your gift!

mmmm – I love these scrappy shabby chic flowers – they made the towels so unique and truly one-of-a-Kind!
