27 January 2012


Decorative towels have always been very tempting..They liven up even the simplest of bathrooms, thus rendering a luxury bath experience.. But most of the time these dainty pieces of fabrics occupy the store shelves with unaffordable prize tags attached to them.. I find this way of decorating towels extremely exciting with plenty of fun filled moments...They are much economical and at the same time provide an expensive appearance to the otherwise plain looking towels...I had quite a good collection of plain coloured cotton towels that called for some strongly contrasting details before use.. Below are those towels after make over.

What you see below is infact a make over granted to a hand embroidered sky blue sari border..I had this sari transformed into a salwar kameez .. I asked the tailor to hand me back any left over embroidered border if at all there was any.. He handed over a very short strip of the border that was left behind...Wondered how to make use of this pretty hand embroidered portion on something that would show off its beauty completely..Thus the idea of attaching it to a snow white towel struck my mind.. Even after sewing it to the edge of a large towel,a squarish piece was left behind.. Had no heart to waste it either.. So came with the idea to create a matching small towel as well..Still a small narrow strip was remaining.. This has been used along the edge of the small towel..I have provided a holder at the back of the small towel using a narrow strip of blue fabric itself..(oops!!!forgot to take the photo)
Petit blue lace embellish the edges

White ribbon bow with a flower lace and blue crystal bead adorn the towel top
Strawberry printed accents attached to snow white towels of various sizes..Red ric-rac and olive lace used to embellish.

A small pink towel with laced edges
Saphire blue and beige towels with different borders

I luv this saphire blue a great deal.
Greenish blue and beige with contrasting borders and laces
Black Red N White Harmony-- Snow white terry towel with black and white printed accent.. This is one of my fav japanese cottons I have in my stash...Highlighted with tiny black and white polka dotted fabric,black laces, red ribbon and a decorative button having a mat finish.

Red spaghetti thin strip attached along the top border to highlight the black and white theme
Four off white coloured towels with accent borders
Sunflower accent with dark green printed borders and a laced edge
I luv the brightness this sunflower print offers the bathroom
Off white towels with accent fabrics in green and white polka dots and tiny red blooms on off white background...The second one is with black and white polka dotted and red bloom on off white fabrics as accents... Crocheted flower,bow and red ric-rac as embellishments.
The green fabric is cotton but has a very smooth satin finish..As well the off white fabric with blooms.
Off white japanese cotton with a spray of petite red blooms as central accent..White polka dots on black indian cotton edged with red ric-rac as borders.Black,red and white ribbon bow with a dark red crystal in the center as adornments.
Hawaiian Breeze.. luv this fabric with off white shoe flowers.Navy ric- rac and offwhite lace with olive ribbon drawn through,along the borders.
Candy pink towel with bunches of tiny pink roses on black...bordered with black and white dotted fabric and olive lace.
Off white terry towel with yellow florals on mustard .. green and white polka dots as border edged with off white lace.
Off white ric-rac along the sides and upper edge of the mustard accent.Luv the subtle satin finish of the cottons.
A daintily embroidered lumbar pillow to use in the car...Bullion roses ,buds, french knots, lazy daisies and ribbon roses have been used to decorate the border.
Luv the pinkish purple lace and the ribbon flowers.. I have made the flowers using the thinnest ribbon avalable here. Also attached a few rice beads in the center to depict pollen.
Was this li'l long a post? In the sheer thrill of sharing them with my sew crazy friends I couldn't keep myself under control while uploading the pictures..Thank you for stopping by and posting your valuable comments.. Your lovely comments are encouraging to a treamendous extend.. As well sincere thanks to all readers who visit the blog from google.
