Finished Dish Towels for the Newlyweds

Here are the dish towels all finished and ready to be wrapped. 

I couldn't believe it but I had some fabric that matched.
My daughter found it at a garage sale.

I just winged it for the edging.  Here's what I did - I cut the fabric 1 inch wide.

I then ironed the strip in half - and then ironed each of the edges 1/4 inch toward the center 

 At the machine, I tuck the dish towel edge into the center of the binding. 
I was careful to leave a nice amount so the machine wouldn't "trip" over it.  I cut that off later.

I sewed right along the edge, tucking the towel in as I sewed. 
After cutting off the excess binding on the ends - I sewed the bottom part of the binding so they don't unravel

I think the Happy Couple will like them. 
And they are finished BEFORE the wedding!

Happy Stitching,
Nicey Linda


  1. Yay! Great job Linda. The fabric on the edges is the perfect touch.

  3. The tea towels turned out so beautiful Linda - what a great handmade gift! Love the bound edges.
