dressy towel


This cute towel topper all started here...
...at an art & craft show that our daughter was showing at.  A warm & wonderful woman next to her booth was selling the most delightful  c*r*o*c*h*e*t*e*d  items.

Oh, just imagine the cutest projects!  And all crocheted!?..

Breathe.

Crocheted ornaments, hotpads, dishcloths, hangars and towels that were made to look like kitchy dresses.  

And everyone was just swarming her booth, swooping up all of her wares.  I was entranced (and yes! I stared shamelessly) at the way she just beamed as people purchased her dearly crocheted items.

So, as soon as there was a lull, my daugher & I poured over her stuff too and I bought her adorable snowman towel.

I love these towel toppers so much I knew I had to make some and began hunting down a pattern that was a bit like the one she had made. 


I was a bit confused by some of the directions I found, so I just studied (and studied.and studied.and studied.) my snowman towel topper instead and came up with this dressy towel topper.



I am off to the store to buy out their selection of Christmas towels.

Can you just imagine how many of these you could make for everyone?...

Oh my these are just too cute. I am thinking about making some for a future craft show and see if they would sell. Can you tell me how much to charge for a dress towel topper. I am no good a pricing things. THESE ARE SO DARN CUTE they would have to sell.

Thanks and love your items. :)

To: Alice,

Thank you!

As for pricing, I would not go over $5 per towel. And you are right -- these will sell like hotcakes!

Have fun with your selling endeavor!
