10 minute dish towel dress

Ok so, I was at Target (i heart you target) yesterday.
My kids were doing the usual...looking through the "dollar spot" for a little prize. When suddenly out of the corner of my eye I see these too cute Halloween dish towels.



They come in a two pack.



For only $2.50.


I don't remember much about what happened after that...


Something about a sewing machine and bribing Lucy with a Popsicle to let me take a picture of her.


You can make one too!
and ladies i do not tell lies. this dress took me 10 minutes to make!



p.s. these adorable legging were puchased at target as well. i think they were around $5.

(Lucy es una niña tan hermosa)Lucy is such a beautiful girl, if my twins are girls one of them will have that name, but in spanish, Lucía, the name means that gives light. Everything you do is simple and pretty, thank you for teaching us. Jobana

I don't know how I ended up here. I do love your blog, totally entertaining and very inspirational.
I used the target handtowels last year to "embellish" (I guess) some homemade babylegs from their knee highs. I am about to break out the gear for that again soon.
Gotta hit Target up for some goods.
very cool girlie.
