My sister celebrated her birthday this week. As a gift I made her these dishtowels. They match her kitchen and the apron I made for her last year. I used flour sack dishtowels and this tutorial from Chronicles of a Mommy. It's a great project for all those scraps you have lying around, and it's pretty quick too!
Here are a few close-ups. (My sister's daughter was the one who decided to put a worm in the apple. What a great idea!)
For the embroidery, I used a blanket stitch, a backstitch, and a french knot (for the worm's eye).
