THANKS AGAIN, RHONDA!!
|Can you see the wonderful NEW YORK CITY print?? Rhonda bought 3 yards for me -- and I AM OVER THE MOON!!|
As you know -- a big part of my training is Swimfit classes. I go three days a week. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??
The truth is -- nobody is more surprised than me, people!!
At this point, I almost always have a bag in my car with a swimsuit and a towel. The beautiful pool at the Bettendorf YMCA has become my new happy place...
|I spend five or six hours a week doing water aerobics...|
The good news is that THEY MAKE TOWELS BIG ENOUGH to wrap around me!! And, with a bit of Frankensewing -- I have developed quite a wardrobe of swim towels. I took two of them to a recent TMBC for Sew and Tell.
|By adding a piece of t-shirt along the top of the towel, when it wraps around, it becomes a sundress...|
|Then, taking some inspiration for the Ya Ya Sisters Wrap pattern, I made two 12 inch slits -- creating armholes...|
|Really -- it's a great idea. You slip your arms through the holes, and don't have to worry about trying to hold the towel on your body...|
(It's hard to carry a camera into a swimming pool environment...)
If you are coming to Sewing Weekend, THERE WILL BE A TOWEL FASHION SHOW...I also have two wonderful kid towel ideas ...(photos to follow)...
