B is for Bath Sheet

It's Metamorphosis Monday over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch and I'd like to take part by showing you my little project that took just about an hour one day last week.

First I have to confess - I had a bit of a spending spree at the Cath Kidston site. Not only did I order the blue polka dot quilt and pillowcases, I also got these two wonderful bath sheets:

Sorry the picture is a bit blurred, don't quite know what happened there. Perhaps I was trembling with excitement over my new fluffy towels with cowboys and polka dots no less. Yippee!

Anyway, now I didn't really need as many plain white bath sheets for myself, but my daughter did. Plain white is a bit boring for an eleven year old though, so I decided to make it a little more interesting.

Take one plain white bath sheet:

and an old blue hand towel that's always at the bottom of the pile because no one wants to use it. I'm pretty sure it's been washed enough times for all the excess colour to have come out (we're talking an old towel here):

Mark out a kind of rugby ball shape and cut out:

Then cut a weird shape out of an old black t-shirt:

Then take an old face cloth (why do I have so much old bathroom stuff in my house?) and cut out two discs (can you guess what it is yet?):

And two pupils from the t-shirt:

Attach the face to the bath sheet using Bondaweb and then zigzag stitch around the edges:

One happy daughter and a fun way to have celebrated Sesame Street's anniversary last week.
