Kitchen Towel Bag~

Some time back I was at Target and I was just strolling along the housewares department when I came across these kitchen towels:

I love the colors of these towels, and the green just caught my eye. Then, I went and felt the towels. Ok, Target....these are not towels, these are really pretty pieces of waffle cotton fabric. Cotton fabric to dry your hands is like trying to dry your hands at a truck stop with the paper that they provide to dry your hands with. I bought the trio of towels knowing that they would never make it into my kitchen.

So, tonight I pulled out these towels out. I am going through some stressful situations in my life, a crown falling out of my mouth is the least of these. So, I needed some therapy tonight and my therapy counselor is my sewing machine. The counselor and I came up with this.....

A super stinking cute bag! Those of  you that follow me know how much I love bags...you can never have enough! 
The cute little ruffle is sweet. 
This is the backside of the bag. 
I went to my button box and found this great yellow buckle. I decided to use this buckle instead of a magnetic snap on the inside. 
I love the green stripe fabric for the lining. 
The bag is the perfect size for a stack of magazines or books.

See, wasn't I right, these are not towels!

Great week to all!
