Hope Chests ~ Flour Sack Towels

Despite the garden keeping me extremely busy this year,
I have managed to complete 2 towels for one daughter, and start a 3rd.  I need to get cracking on the next set for my older kids.  I found horse transfer patterns for my oldest daughter.  I'm not sure what to do for my son (as I should have started with his first).   I may have him design his own for me to embroider.  I will definitely have to design goat patterns for my 14 year old.  Aunt Martha's transfer patterns do not have one for goats.

Those are just TOO stinkin' cute! I would be interested in buying some goat designs for towels if you come up with some! :)

IH!!! i LOVE these! I have them on my craft to do list---with owls :0). I cannot WAIT until the routine of fall when I have scheduled THREE entire hours 3 days a week towards getting my crafts DONE instead of drooling over others' work! So nice!

My son draws, so I plan on getting transfer paper for the goat pattern. If we are successful in coming up with pattern, I will let you know.
