Flour-Sack Hand Towel DIY

Good Monday!
I  think I'm going to ramble for a sentence or two and then I'll give you 
the low-down on
My (faux)Flour-Sack Hand Towels.

I hope every ones weekend was a wonderful one. I can truly testify that mine was. We had a lazy Saturday here around the house. I had some wants to run off to a Vintage and Greenliving show just down the road but it just didn't go that way.
My Sunday I enjoyed going to my sister's church for the baptism of her daughter. 
It was truly uplifting and I do have to say I enjoy her church family!

I started out today feeling very positive. You know how that goes this world we live in 
will do it's best to steal that joy..uggh..LOVEe thy Neighbor..Right?

But I got back on track and finished up this little DIY.

I started out with this beige and very natural fabric I found. 
It is very soft and absorbent. I've incorporated it for some time in many projects.

My thoughts are that I really do like the grainsack, feedsack, or floursack designs and look but those clothes would not truly be enjoyable to use as a hand towel, even though I bet in times past the nice terrycloth towels we use today were not used. 
I'm sure these clothes were used more times than not.

Here I go again with my handy stencils and sharpie.

I taped my lines with some regular scotch tape 
colored in my lines.
I then added some lettering.

Afterward I simply turned the sides and straight stitched them and cut about a 2 inch black strip of cloth;
Sewing it to the ends for binding.

This was my first go around at this project. I feel like I'll be tweaking and trying it again. 
Especially since I ordered some stencils this weekend with this DIY in mind.
My Ole Man doesn't have any idea about this one yet.
It's fun to see his face with some of my zany projects.

Thank you for the visit!
Be Blessed!
