Christmas Towels

Today was such a nasty day that my plans were cancelled. So, that meant I had a chance to spend time in my craft room. So, look what I made today! I've been wanting to try this ever since I bought the new Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die. First, it took me some time to find the right towels....and even though I finally purchased these, they really weren't what I had in mind. But, I just couldn't seem to find plain white...or off towels anywhere! So, these were as close as I could least there was no embellishments or other colors woven in.

Using the smaller of the 2 scallop squares on the die, I punched out a bunch of squares with my Big Shot. Do you recognize the fabric? These squares are from the Deck the Halls collection....there are 15 squares across each towel and I used each of the fabrics, but as you can see, every other one is the red pattern. These squares are really cute....a smaller version of the Clear Square Scallop used for the rag purses. And that's just how the embellishment was made....except, I didn't add a backing since the strip of squares was added to the towels. They still had a small square of cotton batting underneath (between the fabric and towel).

Anyway, I originally thought I'd give them as a gift, but now I'm thinking maybe I'll just keep them for myself!
