A pretty guest towel

I've said before, I'll pretty much put rosettes on anything, and here I go again. I embellished this pretty blue guest towel and LOVE how it looks, especially with the sand colored towel hanging with it for subtle contrast.


I got this 2 pack of hand towels because the color is gorgeous. It is more blue than green, a really nice shade of turquoise. I knew that burlap and muslin would look great combined with this vivid color.

I like it. I like it alot!


And since God is in the details, here is the way I finished the trims on the back. Simple, clean, elegant.

I pulled out some rosettes and buttons, dug into my bead stash and started having fun.



How pretty is this? The towels cost $1.50 apiece and I already had all the other supplies. Breaking it down dollarwise, the muslin and burlap actual cost was about 15 cents and the buttons and fabric rosettes add maybe another 15 cents to the total...so about $1.80 for a whole lot of decorative bang. I still have one more towel left, should I make it complementary to this one or go in a completely different direction? OR, should I go get more towels and have some fun? Decisions decisions. ;0)

I'll be linking to the fun parties in my sidebar, come join the fun and see what creative bloggers are writing about this week. There are TONS of wonderful ideas out there!
