You know, I say it all of the time – I’m really a lucky girl – especially because Jennifer is my daughter. She and I know each other so well that we sometimes joke that we share a brain. For my birthday Sunday Jenn spoiled me with special gifts that only she could have chosen for me. She always knows exactly what I need and she puts so much thought and care when choosing gifts for me and for everyone she knows.
One of these gifts was a fabulous dish towel. It has a beautiful drawing with the phrase “Queen Mum” underneath. I instantly loved the creamy white background color and the gray and charcoal drawing. We each have a fondness for England, Princesses and Queens. And y’all know that I’m the Queen Bee so you can see why this gift was so fun and perfect for me
It soon became very clear what I was going to use the towel for. I wanted to display it where I could see it on a daily basis. Remember my desk chair that recently got a makeover? A pillow was needed for the back and the colors paired perfectly.
I already had a pillow insert that luckily was the perfect size. Do y’all save the inserts of pillows that you no longer want? Being that I frequently change up my decor, I keep the inserts for projects just like this one. You can easily add new fabric or create a cover with a towel just like this one or with fabric napkins like I did HERE.
I didn’t need to cut the towel at all. I folded it in half, right sides together. I sewed the right side and then the left side. I then turned the pillow over right side out, stuffed it with the pillow insert and then sewed the bottom closed.
This could easily be a no-sew-project by using glue or heat and bond hemming. This project took about three minutes to make! How great is that? It took me longer to iron the creases out of the towel
