Easy, Inexpensive, and Cute Present for the Teenage Girl!

Oh did I have fun with this project!!! I was determined to make something for the Terrific Under Ten Tuesday over at At Home With K so I went by Walmart and wandered around shopping and came across these kind of retro style towels. When I saw them I immediately thought of my daughter who is a senior in high school. I knew she would like these. This gave me the idea of a present I could do for all her girlfriends and her that are going off to college this fall and living in the dorms. No one wants their towels to get mixed up with everybody else's towels. Robin loves the colors pink and black, in fact her bed spread, etc. is pink and black in her room. These colors are very popular with teenage girls now.  The towels are very nice quality for the price, not too thin or too thick. I bought two bath towels and a spool of ribbon for $9.84 total.
I came home and got started right away monogramming her initial in pink and black, alternating colors on the two towels. I also embroidered her name on the front right lower corner in alternating colors. I then folded them up and tied a 2" thick pink and black ribbon around them. She loves them! 
She has so many girlfriends graduating with her this year this way I can give them something special and affordable!

The Joy of Service!!

Last Wednesday I had my girls Sunday school class over for the evening. They wanted to make a fleece baby blanket for a woman in our church. She was very special to them and at 47 years old just had a baby girl. They wanted to participate so I thought doing a fleece tie blanket would be just perfect for them. I found the fleece and I embroidered a signature square for them on the solid side as well as a sweet bear with the baby's name on it. That is all I did. They did the rest, the measuring, cutting and tying. They even made sure they tied the strips so they would contrast. They all participated and were so happy when it was done. We will be presenting this to baby Sophia and her mom in a couple of weeks! They can't wait. I had so much fun just chatting with my girls, taking pictures and eating chocolate chip cookies!!!
