A couple of years ago I was really lusting after these linen towels from Toast, when I thought… I have linen and I can sew. I’m going to sew us up some beach towels. So I order some black linen (I already had the flax) and sewed up two 58 x 70 inch beach towels. I’m so glad I did. We have used them at the beach, camping and as a throw to nap with. I love them so much and they took all of 15 minutes to make. You can see that if I took a little more time the stitching could have been straighter, but that’s what makes them mine. I never said I was patient.

Ooo, I love this. Reminds me of the linen towel Jora nabbed in France. Just doesn't get better than linen.

no it does not, plus it only gets better with age.
