Flip it to the Rescue

A Colleague had heard that I rehabilitate torn and unusable family embroidered pieces.  Her grandmother had stitched a lovely linen tea towel but it was tattered and stained.  
She didn't have the heart to throw it out, and asked if I'd like to have it.  I knew immediately what to do with it.  I had been planning to make some old fashion flip dolls in commemoration of our family's duel heritage, Sicilian/ Irish and it would fit perfectly as part of the bodice and apron.   As always, I can't just make one.  Adorable don't you think?
