Flour Sack Tentacles

Bonus tentacles for Friday!
It should come as no surprise to anyone that I have fabric Sharpies as well as the regular kind. I bought them a few months ago, and I’ve finally acquired a package of the flour sack dish towels I like for decorating. This one’s been washed but not, obviously, ironed, and then decorated with pink and purple tentacles.
The tentacles are positioned so that they’re in the center if you fold the towel into thirds, and lay it over a towel bar, but most of the towel is still pristine for actually drying your dishes. It’s 28″ square, which is actually a bit bigger than the towels I’m used to, and the Sharpie says machine wash cold, hang dry, but I haven’t re-washed this one yet to test it.
I haven’t decided how much I’ll list these for on Etsy yet, I have seven to experiment with, but if you would like one as a donation gift instead of a Shrinky Dink, just let me know.
Speaking of which, thank you to all the lovely people who have donated or bought something from Etsy so far! I’m not going to name you darlings since I haven’t asked if I could, but just know that I really, really appreciate every one of you.

that is freaking awesome! it would make a perfect knitting project bag with the sides sewn together! and i <3 that pink and purple together 🙂
Hee, it might make a good bag, though it might be bigger than you think, too… 28″ square is over two feet. 😉 It’d be deep, but very wide!
The pink is very neon in person, but I like the way it makes the purple look livelier.
