Tea Towels and Owl

Jenny of Elefantz challenge for January was making items from TeaTowels. I had a different kind of tea towel challenge last week - we got a delivery at the laundry - a few thousand of the blighters - oh and it was my job to wash, dry and fold them - so I spent two whole days at it and got about half done! This bucket contained 600 and I left those for the boss to deal with on Saturday - my guess is they will mostly still be there tomorrow. He did kindly donate one to my cause - okay so it is one off the outside of the bale - I just soaked it then washed it, now it's clean. I made myself a bag that I can take to the supermarket when I am walking - oh and I lined it with the calico that makes up the rest of the bale packaging - Thanks Boss.
I had some fun this afternoon with the same pattern that I used in the previous post for the Owl applique - it was a softie pattern so I made it up as intended today - I just enlarged the pattern to make this cutie. It is my intention to use it for a Toy Society drop tomorrow morning, hoping is brightens some student's day on the first school day of the year.
Hope your weekend was a good one - Enjoy the coming week.
Happy Creating

Good use of a tea towel. Cute Owl, I'm sure whoever finds it on their way to school will love it, it will certainly make the back to school (or starting school) morning a lot brighter.
