Handmade Gifts: Dishtowels

I didn't get to finish as many gifts as I had hoped to this year, but I was able to knock out a few. I made photo dishtowels for several people on my list using old photographs of my grandparents and pairing them with quotes I found.

With this picture of my Grandma Bonnie the quote said, "A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up."

This is a picture of all the girls on the Jensen side of my family back in the day. The quote said, "For me sitting still is harder than any kind of work."

This is a collection of the towels. For my friend Sandy and my mother-in-law, Betty, I scanned in their favorite family recipes and put those on their towels, but I didn't get pictures of them!

Now that I'm home I need to make a few of these towels for myself. They are mainly for decoration since I don't know exactly how long the iron-on transfers will hold up. I advised everyone not to wash a car with the towels.
