thrifting: hand towel

I’ve been keeping my eyes open for bathroom linens ever since my friend Ginger showed me her beautiful bathroom sink. You need just the right sort of vintage linen to show off on that towel bar.

I finally found one.

What’s remarkable is that the entire thing seems hand-sewn. The edges are rolled and stitched by hand, and all the tiny tiny blanket stitch on the applique is by hand.

I was so amazed to find this towel, it appears unused. And of course I half-hate to let it go, but I don’t have the right bathroom to show it off in (yet!). You need a vintage sink to really show off such a pretty vintage towel. Sigh. I hope you like it, Ginger!
