Trimmed Towels

Regular followers will know I love a trimmed towel and here's some I've made this week as a Christmas gift.

The fabrics I've chosen are from my stash and although they are exactly the same colourway they aren't actually from the same collection - the dot fabric is Dear Stella Platinum Palladium 23
and the cross fabric is Kyoto Gardens 6040 by Lori Mason for Andover Fabrics.

And a quick look at something else I've trimmed this week, our Christmas tree.

Are you holiday ready yet?

Want to see more trimmed towels?  In true Blue Peter style here's some I made earlier - click image to see the original blog post.
