Hare's A Towel
Hare's a towel. Well, actually, several guest towels or cloth napkins with gentle hares hopping across them.
I love the black and white - just add some touches of pastels and Easter and Spring is hare, er, here!
I hopped over to The Graphics Fairy to grab me a happy hare. This is the same hare I have used many times. Most recently I altered him for the Hare Bench. See him here!
I also grabbed a frame. So I had large black silhouettes alone and two different-sized frames with smaller hares.
I printed them out on transfer paper. Hence the backward-ness of the images!
Using my trusty Hobby Lobby coupons I bought two packs of Aunt Martha towels (On separate days - I do not break HL rules - they know who I am and where I live!)
I chose one pack of three with blue stripes and one pack with red stripes. They do have a pack of multi-colored ones I may use in a future project.
Back when I broke my three-year streak of not entering Walmart, I bought a pack of five flour sack towels. I must admit I did love these and will have to find an alternate source for them. Let me know if any of you know a place.
I used the large silhouette of the hare on the flour sack towels. I used my ceramic flat top stove as the hard surface needed to iron on the transfers. I have put a baking sheet on the ironing board as a surface also.
I tied green tulle around the top to create a pretty ruffle and a way to hang them. These would be great for over-sized napkins or draped over the backs of dining chairs.
I used the framed hares on the striped towels.
Of course, being so picky about small details, I put one design on the blue and the other design on the red. No mixing hares.
The spring green tulle makes them perfect for spring.
Though at the moment I think most of us are shivering.
Winter has finally arrived in
Doesn't Mother Nature know it is MARCH!
Check in later in the week when I post my vintage finds. Not only do I not know what LESS means, but I am now very confused about the meaning of MORE. MORE may have to change to MOSTEST EVER!
