A fun little diversion

I just finished a cute little project for my granddaughter. My daughter in law says that baby towels aren't absorbent enough or big enough so.... I made these two machine embroidered appliqué towels. They are so fun and my DIL loves them. They use a bath towel, half a hand towel (cut in half lengthwise), and a wash cloth. Always fun to change things up from time to time!
