I thought I would get an early start this year. I hate giving Christmas gifts, I have a hard time deciding what to give anyone. I do know that my daughter and my brothers like the hanging dish towels that I make, so that's what I will make to give to them. I will make five of these pretty dish towels and I should have them all finished by next week.
I bought the fabric and the towels for this project last month. I bought two huge white tea towels and cut them into quarters. I hemmed the one cut side on my sewing machine and then I put the towel into the hoop to add the embroidery to it. I only got one embroidery made tonight but I love it. I will embroider the rest over the weekend then I can start adding the fabric toppers to each one.
Here's the embroidery design I'm using on the towels.
This makes a nice break from hand sewing hexies. I really miss my sewing machine when I'm doing a hand sewing project. I love pressing down on the foot pedal of the machine and sewing at full speed.
