I know you all have fabric scraps lying around, jamming your closets (or is it just mine?) I grabbed a fabulous set of Martha Stewart flour sack towels ($12) and got started.
I cut some flowers out of the cotton fabric with pinking shears so that they wouldn't fray. Then I took an extra flour sack towel and cut it into four 5X6 rectangles, also cutting with pinking shears.
I hand sewed the flowers to the rectangle. I used a contrast stitch, because I like how it looks.
Then, I machine sewed the rectangles to the towels, being sure to center them on the bottom half of the towel.
I really love the extra texture that the pinking shears and the contrast stitch give these towels.
And here they are, all wrapped and ready to go. Every cook appreciates a nice fresh set of dish towels. These are so nice, I'd use them in a guest bath!
