To go with the Tween Bedroom Makeover, where I showed the bedding I had made for my granddaughter, these are the towels I made for her bathroom. I monogrammed them with her initial with a great monogram font frame . The rick rack design is so cute and it really says fun to me. Then I trimmed the towels with a matching ribbon that went with her favorite color and her bedding.
I think they turned out great and we all know that tweens really love anything personalized!

Once again, I love fun little aprons. This one was from a remnant I had (I have a little problem with the remnant bin at Joann's). The pattern was Simplicity 3752 and it probably took an hour all total to make. It has a bias tape waist band so that was really quick. It makes me feel happy with all of the little funky flowers on it, I just wish I was as skinny as my little mannequin!

For my granddaughter's birthday I decided to make her new bedding. I started with the plaid fabric that I already had. And since her favorite color is this turquoise blue, it was the perfect start, or so I thought. I backed it with a solid blue that I got at Wal-mart, which turned out to be her preference, so her it is reversed!
Naturally, a twelve year old girl has to have something really cool and fun, so I found the exact turquoise to match in the super soft eyelash fabric at Joann's and made two euro shams and added in a white eyelash sham to go with them. Lastly, I appliqued some throw pillows in various shapes for accents with her name, initial and a couple of cute flowers. To my relief, she was thrilled! (You never know with twelve year olds.)
Her mom and dad even painted the room to match a few weeks later. I will show those picks when I find the pics of the chair cushion I made her to go with all of this.
