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
