gifts for Christmas

thanks to the Salt Creek Patchmakers guild in Clinton, Ill. I have learned to new towel project. I went to their guild last Monday night and gave a presentation on "tips and trick"  which I enjoyed their meeting afterwards. Love show and tell.   they had been having a sew day before the meeting and making items for their fundraiser.  They had made some of these towels that look like dresses to hang over an oven door bar or a towel bar.  So they let me trace off the pattern for the top.  Today I decided to try one or two..  Each towel makes two since you cut them in half...    You can decorate them how ever you want to after sewing the top onto the towel..
here are the two that I have made so far.  Just used some pieces of fabric that I had waiting to be put into something. 
I will be making more of these for gifts and will make some for our quilt show in March for our boutique booth.   May write up some directions for these also.
