Dishtowel Knock-Off {Anthropologie}

I saw this -----> 

on the Anthro website and loved it, but not it's price tag ($24)!!
So, I decided to make it myself!

What I used:
White flour sackcloth dishtowel (Dollar Tree = $1),
Embroidery Thread (Michaels 36 color pack= $5.99) + 40% off coupon
Embroidery Hoop for centering the design (Michaels= $1.89) 
Fabric scraps for the leaves, bird, & clothes

I just free-handed the design.....& since I only used 9 colors of thread (.10 each), the cost for this project was only $3.80!!


sorry this one is sideways....

*This dishtowel is being sold for Adding Anna Carson's adoption :)

  4. Hi Jamie!
    I popped over from your comment on my blog. I saw your "favorites" page & just wanted to say that I went to Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN & spent a lot of time in Brentwood & Franklin (especially the mall), & I lived in Indiana for 3 years! Crazy the connections we find in blogland! I'm glad I found you; this project is amazing! I'm a new follower.
