DIY Dish Towel

Adding just a little pretty to the kitchen workhorse. These dish towels make a great hostess or shower gift.  You can use fabrics to compliment your decor or for a specific season.

What you will need:

Plain cotton dish towel - mine measured 36 x 34 inches.

Fabric scraps that can be cut and pieced into a strip of fabric long enough to fit across the towel or pre cut 5 inch squares from a charm pack. I used pre-cuts for this demonstration. I used seven 5 inch squares for my 36 x 36 inch towel.

1. Stitch your squares together end to end for form a long strip.

2. Press seams open or to one side.

3. Press a 1/4 inch hem along long edges.

4. Pin about 4 inches from the bottom hem of your towel.

5. Stitch to towel, tucking in raw edges on the two short edges to fit evenly across the towel. Press.

Holiday Decorating - Outdoors

I am feeling pretty organized this year as we get ready for the Holidays. I managed to get my outdoor pots together before freezing.

I always start with a tall red twig dogwood.

 This year, I added an upside down tomato caged to the middle of my pot so I can add some additional color and accents for Thanksgiving and then switch them out for Christmas.

I filled in with spruce tops and various evergreens.

Finished with some clippings from my garden (and my neighbors front yard).
