Towels for Tots

July 7, 2008

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love anything monogrammed. But being the Frugal Fran that I am I can’t bring myself to buy $25 beach towels from Pottery Barn and pay the extra money to have it monogrammed and then hand it over to my guys to cover in popsicle and ketchup. My solution was to buy some $6 beach towels from Wal-Mart and use one of their old baby blankets to personalize it. They turned out super cute! So far they’ve used them as magic carpets, rest time blankets, and snack time mats. The best part is that they have the same initial so they can share the towels. I even made one for a special little girl whose birthday we missed, but I hope she’ll forgive us whe she see’s that her towel is covered in turtles. Grey slept with his last night and Gentry was so excited to see his this morning that he wouldn’t part with it long enough for me to take a picture.

    Of course it’s for miss addy, when I saw the turtles I couldn’t resist. The “A” is a little wonky but maybe grandma can work a little magic on it ๐Ÿ™‚
