Dish Towel Robe

I'm frequently impressed by the creativity I see exhibited out in the blogosphere and often a tad jealous of everyone else's craftiness.  But every now and then I stumble onto something that really blows me away.  They may not be the most complicated projects (sometimes they are quite complicated), but more often than not, they're just so clever.  And generally (but probably not surprisingly), they usually involve bright colors.

Care's little robe, made of two terry dish towels from the Dollar Store, is one of those projects.  When I saw it on her blog, Obsessively Stitching, I was simply wowed.  Actually, my first thought was that it's just adorable, and my second thought was, "How did she ever come up with that idea???"  I'm still pondering the second.

I think the robe would make a darling pool or beach cover-up as well.  Care has 12-step tutorial on her blog, and it looks simple enough that I'm tempted to lug out my old sewing machine myself!
