Twins' Birthday Gifts

I have twin nieces who are 9 months older than my daughter and just turned 3.  I like to sew for them and my sister usually has a lot of requests for me.  She sent me some fabric she had to use for applique.

I ended up making shirts with a zebra print she sent.  They have a peace sign outlined with hot pink.  This was a request from my sister, who is much trendier than I am. 

peace signs from GG Designs Embroidery
They stitched out great and I really liked the detail of the running stitch on top of the satin stitch.

I also made some hooded towels, using the tutorial from Cole's Corner and Creations.
My cheesy model
 They were big, super soft towels I got at Target a few weeks ago.  The tag claims they are fast drying.  I didn't run any timed tests to check this claim, but they did leave a TON of fuzz in the dryer when I pre-washed/dried them.  I really like them though (did I mention they are super soft?) and they had a really good variety of colors.
I stink at taking straight photos...
The duck is a re-sized 4x4 design from Designs by Juju, made using fabric that matches the curtain in the girls' bathroom.  The names are stitched in the Whoa Nelly font from 8 Claws and a Paw.

The towels were a really fun project and quick to sew--the embroidery took up most of the time.  I plan on making more soon, they are rather addicting.
