Vintage beach towels displayed and repurposed

I had these two very cute vintage beach towels - one came from a local yard sale and the other I bought on ebay. The one towel has been thrown over a cedar chest the past year, because I didn't know what else to do with it. When I bought the 2nd one, I had to figure out something cool to do with them. I wanted to display them, but not mess with them in any way since they are perfect and unused.

So tah-dah, why not make curtains out of them? I only handstitched a loose rod pocket along the top - no cutting was done to them at all and the stitches are wide and spaced, easy to remove. I hung them in the kitchen in the cottage at the Shore, perfect for a beach kitchen, plus they are still nice and bright, letting light through. I love them.

Now - I need 2 more towels for the other window!
