CTR Towel

in my church at the age of 8, a child is baptised. baptism is a personal covenant between you and God. at that age, their primary (sunday school) class is called the CTR's. CTR means CHOOSE THE RIGHT and this is the emblem that associates with that saying... when i came across a CTR towel and poem on the Made with Love and Glue blog, i had to bookmark it in my favorites in hopes i'd get to make one soon! so when i found out that a friends son had made the important decision to be baptised, i knew i just had to make this for his special day! there's a poem that goes along with the towel that just fits it so well! here are my digiscrap versions of it...

if you're interested in making this, here's the tutorial she offers. it's great! she also has links for the CTR emblem and poem. happy appliquing!

I've got this project bookmarked to do for when my daughter turns 8 in June!! I can't wait!

I'd love it if you'd consider linking any of your sewing projects at my "Sew Cute Tuesday" link party! I started it as a way to get some sewing project ideas. You can check it out at

This is great. I love that a lot of us craft bloggers are LDS, because I love all of these ideas. I'll have to try this soon, my oldest is now in a CTR class

Okay, I've heard of a baptism towel, but I've never heard of the cute CTR applique on one. (Hmmm....I must live a long way from Utah!) This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
