Web Project: Embroidered Dish Towels
Now that you've read through the embroidery tutorial Amie posted yesterday, it's time to put your sewing skills to good use! Posie Gets Cozy -- aka blogger/crafter Alicia Paulson -- has posted free pdf files and instructions to create your own Days-of-the-Week dishtowels, right here (found via the amazing Design Freebies blog). Alicia has created designs featuring a pastry tube, cookie cutter, Dutch oven, stovetop espresso maker, and an egg cup, plus more kitchen kitsch to trace and embroider. Use towels from your mother's linen closet (please ask first!), or look for plain flour sack towels, like this set from Williams-Sonoma. Cleaning up after dinner will never be a chore again!
