turns out, i was making a bath-mat :-)
got the idea from Megs old side montessori by hand, who renamed her blog to sew liberated and yes, she is the one with the great patterns.
the blue, red and white fabric are from the "rambling rose" collection by dena designs for freespirit and i really like those designs, especially the stripes. this line is on sale at fabricshack.com right now, so if anybody is interested.. the people there are really nice and i got my order in no time.
for the back i used an old dark red towel which i could happily (well..) cut up cause i just bought the bright and shiny new ones.
working with terrycloth always is messy, you get all these little flakes flying around, so i am reall happy that i did not vacuum-cleaned as planned yesterday :-)
