Today we bought Blossom some soccer boots because she has joined the local girls soccer team and practice begins on Thursday night. She has never played before but is raring to play - especially as one of her favourite movies is Bend It Like Beckham! In fact she watched it this afternoon for some practice tips. :-)
It's very wet and muddy here right now due to the wet season arriving, and as I looked over my pile of sturdy tea towels I realised they are made from exactly the sort of fabric I'd need for a shoe bag that Blossom could put her boots in after the game - thus avoiding the muddying of everything else in her soccer uniform bag.
I embroidered her name on the front, and used some Fat Quarter Shop twill tape for the ties. Blossom insisted I show you her new soccer boots too...
This tea towel came free with a copy of Real Living magazine last year, so it cost me nothing. It's like canvas, lovely and thick, perfect for a shoe bag!
Some other crafters have been busy with their own tea towel projects, and are now entered in the giveaway for January.
Lyn made two items with her tea towels so she'll have two entries in the giveaway.
Firstly she made a plastic bag holder...
...and then she made a bag to hold pantyhose, socks, and other smalls.
Great uses for tea towels, girls!!
If you haven't entered my January Tea Towel Challenge yet, you'll need to get your thinking caps on and start sewing. Only 6 days left!
