We discovered some fabulous fabric that we just knew had to be sewn into a set of tea towels! It seems to be a sturdy cotton (perhaps a blend with linen?). It had a lovely combination of sage/spring green stripes and periwinkle embroidery.
Quality hand towels can cost a significant amount in a gourmet cooking supply store (but are a favorite gift for a devoted cook). I was thrilled to spend around a dollar for the roll of fabric.
I originally intended to sell the towels in my Etsy shop, but as a dear sister-in-law’s birthday grew closer, her name kept coming to mind as I looked at the colors of that sweet fabric. So, it became a fun gift-sewing project!
I cut out two generous “towel-sized” rectangles, and carefully hemmed the edges. I neatly folded them, and tied them into a gift bundle with some organza ribbon.
Then, I tucked in a delightful bar of Organic Mint Soap from the sustainable Oregon Soap Company. (A great scent to remove any cooking odors from your fingers!)
A simple, sweet gift!
