It’s February and that means that our 10 days of LOVE series is kicking off.  Ethne and I adore Valentine’s Day and the sweetness it brings.  You see we both feel blessed to have QUALITY husbands (more on this later), but we feel it is appropriate to spend 10 days on all thinks RED!

And so, we will kick-start the series with a craft!  OF COURSE IT IS THRIFTY AND EASY TO MAKE!  You will LOVE IT!

I am “stealing” this idea from a blog that I follow.  You can read all about it here.

All you need for supplies are dishtowels.  I purchased the white cotton flour-sack kind.  And you need pom-pom trim.  I selected RED for the season.  (I unfortunately do not have a Joanne’s Fabrics in my little city, ND town, so no coupon for this purchase…however, most craft stores will carry this product and with a coupon…EVEN BETTER!).

It’s super easy…simply sew the trim along the edge of the dishtowel and there you have it!  (you can decide how many edges to sew.  I opted to sew ONLY along the bottom edge; however you could do more).  I folded them into groupings and tied them with red and white ribbon (already had on hand).

Mur-Man helped me while I sewed (and insisted on wearing swim trunks!)

SUPER AFFORDALBE!  SUPER ADORABLE!  And the perfect gift.
