I had an Aunt Honor, who was an expert seamstress, knitter, smocker....you name it, she did it.
She always made the new babies, a bath towel, with a hood attached, among many other hand made items. Always knitted beautiful sweaters, and made my girls matching smocked dresses every Christmas. They had dresses every color of the rainbow. She even smocked my son a romper, one year, to match my oldest girls dress....navy blue with white smocking....I must get those old photos out, and get my son to hook up the scanner for me....what fun I could have with that!!!tee hee hee...
I have very warm memories of Aunt Honor...who was actually my Mothers cousin, so technically, not really an Aunt...but none the less..a wonderful person.
A few months back, I searched the internet for a pattern for this " thing" ,a hooded bath towel.... that I had such fond memories of.
Well....I found a lovely ladies blog, with a picture tutorial on how to make the combo.
Finding the perfect towel and wash cloth became a bigger task. All the towels at Homesense were way too big...But I found this lovely coral one at WalMart...and got to work..
I think the rick-rack added a whimsical touch...
|I think it came out pretty darn good...|
|And I am sure Aunt Honor would be pleased with my finished product...|
|Here is Vivian 5 days old....my other daughter and I were watching her, and we found this hat [I had given her] and we had to take a few pictures....|
Hope you all had a great day...lots of rain for the garden..
