Recently, I came across this image from the blog Running With Scissors:
I had to give it a whirl. The blog post suggested using recycled towels, however, the only towels I could find were pastelly (I know that's not a real word) and not vibrant enough for what I wanted to do. Instead I found some great, inexpensive, and bright towels at Target (pre-boycott).
I have never worked with towel terrycloth before. I found it a bit challenging, as the material seemed to get caught on the needle and unravel as I was working it.
I even broke my first needle! (which sort of made me feel like a sewing badass.)
I couldn't print out the pattern from the website, so I decided to just wing it and create two washcloths - a shark and a fish. They both look the same - droopy, forlorn.
And they both have underbites, which, I feel is a totally underrepresented demographic in our society...right?
