I thought that you would enjoy seeing the hand towels that I embroidered and added french, swiss, and victorian lace to. You need perfect squares of cloth, an embroidery design, and lace. Run baby seams around edges of cloth. Embroider desired design. Trim edges with lace, using the french handsewing techniques. Remove basting seam, which I had not done before photo was taken. Martha Pullen has books and tips on her website.
The embroidery CD is the Heirloom Tea Dress by Martha Pullen. Lace can be purchased online at Martha Pullen, or at your local heirloom sewing store.
Create using your own taste and style!
See you soon,
