I mentioned in the post...Sue To The Rescue of SunBonnet Sue...my extensive collection of SunBonnet Sue Stuff. Some of the 'SueStuff' I've collected for future Sue projects are these 'Classic Patterns' from Aunt Martha's Iron On Transfers. As suggested on the envelope, they can be used for embroidery, fabric painting, quilting, wearable art, needlepoint and other crafts. I always thought I'd use them for a quilt, but folks, I have enough quilts to 'Quilt Bomb' Dallas.
I've made a decision...with a little help from my Mama and a complete stranger.
Aunt Martha's Bonnie Bonnet Girls Transfers are going on Tea Towels like these made by my Mama.
One for each day of the week...I don't know what happened to Mama's Saturday...maybe she needed a pretty Tea Towel for a special occasion on Saturday, but none the less, there are Seven Sue's and Seven Flour Sack Dish Towels in the package I found.
Did you know those Flour Sack Towels like my Grandma Minnie and Mama used back in the day are hard to find theses days? I got the idea to use the Sue Transfers for Tea Towels from a complete stranger who came into the shop where I work looking for Flour Sack Towels or fabric to make them. None to be had there, so I suggested she look online.
The Bunny Tea Towels were made by my Mama many years ago...probably in the 1950's or 1960's. She never used them...except maybe the Saturday Bunny...and gifted them to me last year. They had been tucked away in her special drawer all these years. You can imagine how I treasure them. I can't help but think that the Bonnie Bonnet Sue Flour Sack Tea Towels I plan to make will someday be treasured by my Grand Gals. Oops....I did say Gals...guess I'll have to order TWO packages of Flour Sack Tea Towels. I like the Colonial Girls, too.
