January Tea towel Challange.What do you think???



Jenny over at Elefantz posted a january challange on her blog and the only stipulation was it had to involve a tea towel (or two) and be finished by january 31st.I already had five lovely waffle weave tea towels I'd recently purchased from Spotlight for $1 each so I was already halfway there with the challange.
After much thought and a bit of procrastination I decided to accept the challange and voila I now have my very own personalised bag to use when I go to the library.
I designed the flower stitchery myself as well as the bag and all up it took me a few hours today from start to end to get it all done.
Guess where I'm off to tomorrow with my new bag? You guessed it I'm off to the library to test out my new bag!
