SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scot I Bathrooms can be deadly dull and cold looking if they are not decorated with a little imagination. To give huge expanses of tile a look of warmth and color, you must depend on towels, shower curtain, floor mats and shelves with pretty bottles on them. If you have a small bathroom, this is sometimes difficult to do. Using towels with appliqued monograms is a terrific way to dress up the bathroom, but having towels appliqued professionally is quite costly. So if your budget can't quite afford it, then do it yourself. It isn't difficult and the luxurious effect it will give is certainly worth the effort. If you're not too good at sketching initials (flowers, if you prefer), you can buy pattern transfers of various motifs in any pattern department. Applique work can be done by hand, but it's much easier and will stand up better after many washings, if a zig-zag machine or zig-zag attachment is used. 1. Cut piece of fabric for design large enough (about 1" wider on all sides) for ease in applying. 2. Place fabric on towel, right side up; place tissue design over this; pin and baste to towel. 3. Straight stitch around design, using matching thread and short stitch. 4. Pull off tissue. 5. Set zig-zag machine or attachment for a narrow bight and short stitch. 6. Stitch over edge of design, covering straight stitching. 7. Trim away excess fabric, close to the stitching. Small embroidery or cuticle scissors are perfect for doing this. For a really elegant look, if you have a large bathroom, applique the same design, only larger, on a terry cloth shower curtain to match the towels. Buy enough terry cloth so that finished measurements are the same as standard shower curtain. Measure old curtain and then use as a pattern to cut terry cloth, allowing 1W for the top hem, 3y a " for bottom hem and W for side hems. After applique is on, to hem: turn edges (top, bottom and sides) under %". Then turn up hems 2" at top, 3" at bottom and 1" on sides. Add shower curtain rings and hooks. Miss Scott is happy to help SEAMS TO ME readers with sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobes and fashions. However, because so many are seeking her assistance, she asks readers to please limit their letters to one question. Send your question to Patricia Scott in care of this newspaper, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope for reply. (© I960. Field Enterprises. lac.)
