Two Towels.

I've been really keen to make a towelling cover for Arthur. The new Burda has a lovely pattern, but I thought with so many towels hanging around surely it would be easy to knock something up?!

So here we have it, bodge up sewing at it's best. I'm not too bothered this little number will last the summer before it even falls apart or Arthur grows out of it, even so I think it will do the trick. On this first picture the top is neatly held together by Arthur's chin I forgot that the fabric would hang down which you see in the next photo.

I actually like the way it hangs like a little collar, although I might add a small fastening so we can have it either way.

It quiet cute, but my working not with a pattern isn't that great to be honest, but a little upcycling means I can get away with it.

Hope you enjoy your own sewing time this week.
