One of the small gift ideas I like to give is a set of dishtowels. I told you that the gift didn’t need to be and should not be elaborate.
I often embroider store bought towels, but this time I am taking a few yards of muslin and stitching up the borders for a personal set for a good friend.
The measurements are completely arbitrary. A dishtowel can be functional or simply decorative. I prefer that my offerings are functional. So, I make them half a width of fabric and 20 or so inches long. Because I will be adding a colorful cuff, I only need to hem 3 sides of the towel.
