A Little Something
Here are two of a dozen kitchen towels I decorated with Christmas fabric. Obviously these aren't a pair, but I did repeat the designs in twos. I prewashed the fabric so it won't bleed, but I didn't prewash the towels. A little distortion from shrinking should not hurt the appearance too much, I hope. I'm intending to use them as hostess gifts or small gifts for friends.
It was fun to use some of the things I learned at my Janome owner's class last week. I love the heavy topstitch on the right-hand towel, and the stitch-in-the-ditch foot made the piped edging on the other one easy. This whole project is so unlike anything I usually do that I enjoyed it.
Now back to pre-Thanksgiving chores. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
