The Beauty of Dishtowels

Good news: I am done with school for the semester! Woohoo! Cheer with me! Woohoo!

And in other good news: I have a new craft to share with you! Woohoo!

This craft is simple, sweet, versatile, and personal: Stitching on dishtowels.

This is the towel I completed yesterday (ya, when I was supposed to be studying). Sweet and simple, the letter “H”, h for home, h for hope, or h for Holly, take your pick.

All you need is a dish towel, some embroidery thread, a needle, and fabric (optional). Feel free to stitch on a shape, letter, animal, flower, or anything that pops into that sweet mind of yours. I say the extra fabric is optional because the first time I stitched on a dishtowel I created the image out of my stitching.

Yes, I see the stain too. That just means my dishtowels are loved. A dishtowel isn’t mean’t to be crisp and white forever. This project just adds a little life to those floppy things we drape all over our kitchens.

A stitched on dishtowel is also a great bridal shower gift, birthday present, late Mother’s Day gift, or a lovely gift for any one who appreciates the treasures of kitchen well-loved. I hope you are adventurous and drag all your dishtowels out of your cupboard and stitch them all over!

What do you want to stitch on your dishtowels?
