Final entries for the January Tea Towel Challenge!

Here are the final entries in my January Tea Towel Challenge - and once again we see how creative you are with a simple tea towel! 

Hanna has used tea towels that were handed down to her from her husband's side of the family to make this sweet little bowl, and a matching table runner...
Jeanette made this beautiful bag...
Barb has made another bag, this one for her lucky sister!...
 Mistea has made a shopping bag from a tea towel donated by her boss!...
And here is our youngest entrant at just 5 years old!! Jennifer's daughter made a bag using her new little Singer!

Well it seems that this Challenge really taught us that the humble tea towel has more uses than drying dishes or wiping hands - I wonder if you will continue to find uses for them now that the Challenge is over? I hope so! I know I'll be on the look out for pretty tea towels from now on - you never know what new life it can have.

Not an entry in the Challenge, but if you have small daughters you might like to try THIS with a tea towel, too! They are the cutest skirts!

Thank you  to everyone who participated in this Challenge! You are so talented!!
I will be using the Random Generator to choose the winner of the Challenge giveaway later today, and will post it on my blog tonight.

I will also tell you what our February Challenge is going to be. Do you think you know?

  5. ok but if you draw my name, redraw cause I really don't deserve it with so many other fabulous entries!!! Seriously, I'm, just happy with your free BOM! I have the perfect tea towel to make into an apron, and I'd bought all the supplies and everything, but totally forgot about it until today - way past the time needed to make it and before the deadline. But that's ok cause I can't actually remember where I put it....

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
