Happy Valentine's Day!
If you're here from Sew We Quilt, I want to welcome you! (I am a guest blogger there today.) I had a little help from Fiona, the neighbor's chihuahua, when I was trying to get my post ready. She was really into all things Valentine!
I gave a little of the history of lipstick towels from the 1940's. (You can read it on my guest blog post.) Here I'm going to give you a simple tutorial for making your own and a chance to win one! This is such a simple project, many of you will not need a tutorial, but I have several followers who are new to sewing. I do have a little tip in there that even the more experienced might appreciate, so glance through it for that. If you're new to sewing, this is EASY! You can do it!
|3. Place each A piece right sides together with a B piece, sandwiching the trim in between the two. Sew a 1/4" seam to connect the two.|
|4. Press each sewn piece, turning the seam upward so the trim will lay flat.|
|5. Put the two pieces right sides together. Pay attention to match the seams at the sides for the borders.|
