Towel Toppers I

My latest obsession:

TOWEL TOPPERS!!!

With a rose enclosure instead of a button:
 Made from a microfiber towel purchased at the Dollar Store, cut in half.
Two dish towels = $1 USD!
Medium blue and light blue, both with red roses!
Made easy with the "Sharp Crochet Hook",
a favorite crochet tool!
I love working with gingham; 
the squares make it so easy to make straight cuts and line stitches up evenly.
Pattern found here.

One is here:

 and one here:

Don't for a second think this is the end of these....
It's just the beginning!
(But you knew that didn't you?)

  8. They're very pretty - and very creative to use a rose for the closure instead of a button. :)
