Yay for Spring Break !

Let's just say that my DIY'ing has been put on hold for a while due to being busy…duh.  So before my spring break started, I made a long list of things that I wanted to do around the house + crafting.  I have been pumping out projects like crazy !

Some projects are gifts for friends, so I won't be able to post those until later, but others are for our house.  Once they are complete (some have been put on hold a little more since it started snowing…not so springy here) I will share !

Come back later this week for some finished projects!

Springin' in More Towels

Last year, when I made some cute Easter hand towels, they caught my cousin's eye.  So she asked me to make her some for this Easter and I did: 
^ Towels before snap and button.


I purchased two towels last year when they were on sale and cut them in half, thus getting four hand towels.  

This is the post about the very first time that I made the hanging towel.  It gets a lot easier to make them after you do a few of them.  The longest part is tracing and cutting out the "handle" parts.  I am still sewing snaps instead of making a button hole because: 1. I still don't know how to sew a button hole and 2. I like the snaps better.  

So, there you have it.  A little spring action for you.  I've been lucky enough to have a couple snow days, but used it to clean instead of craft.  It sure is nice being a teacher !

Now you can Do It Yourself Too !
