Happy Birthday T

My goal has been to try and sew a Christmas gift a day to try and get everything done by the time we travel for Christmas. This past weekend I finished all of the stuff for my in-laws. 3 gifts down 4 to go PLUS the stuff I'm making for my daughter (doll clothes for her new doll from Santa, and I'm thinking of making this art case tutorial - I think it'll be great for church).

In the meantime I made these dish towels for Tracy for her birthday. They were easy and fun to make. I just bought some white towels from Restoration Hardware, patched one and did applique on the other.
Happy Birthday Tracy! I can't wait until next year for your 30th birthday party (yes - she's already planning it).

I was looking at an enlarged picture of the owl and it looks like you've used felt. Is that washable? Am I just dumb--I thought you couldn't wash felt for some reason.

hi lisa -

i did use felt for the eyes. they will probably shrink up a bit when washed. . .

you can wash it, and maybe should before you use it if you're going to use it on something washable.
