    A quick towel for a last minute gift!

    Thanks all. I was looking for a more modern look; I'm quite traditional--was a stretch to find the fabrics from my stash. Actually didn't take long to do. Simple shapes so easy quick sewing; and sewing buttons on by machine made it fast. Original design was used on a child's dress.
