New Ruffled Tea Towels

It's been a cold dreary day here in Northern Ontario.
Too cold to paint in the garage. So my bistro set will have to be put on hold.
If you missed my post on FREE go here.

So why not stay warm in the comfort of my sewing studio.
I loved seeing all the ruffled tea towels, so why should I do without.

These are the newest two linen look with ruffles.

I love how they turned out. I think I will make two more so that I can use
them as napkins as well.

Well while I was at it I still had some blue and white ticking left over from another
project and made two more.

I felt that they needed some french flare so I took some graphics from the famous
Graphic Fairy and applied my graphic to the tea towels.

In English they read Pastry Shop.   Yummy wouldn't it be fun to be the proprietor
of a cute French Pastry Shop.   I'm afraid that I would eat all the profit and become

Have a great week!
