Guest Towels

A friend of my is moving into a new home and I 
made her a few towels for the guest bathroom.

I started with a strip of material, about 60 cm long
and 10 cm. wide.
Then stitched a seam on the bottom and sides.

My machine gathers when I put both settings 
in the highest number.
I added a nice cotton lace to the material strip
and gathered them together.

Here I stitched them both on the edge of a small towel.
I put it on the edge so there is more towel left.

To finish it off, I added a nice trim to hide the raw edges.

Not to forget the covered soap,
now put it all in a decorated basket.

Perfect! to welcome guests in a romantic style..

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I will join in with Courtney

  3. I love those towels. The fabric is great and love the ruffles. What a perfect ruffle you get--I have never heard of a machine doing that. My ruffle attachment is giving me problems lately.
