You may remember way back to my list of Autumn projects?
Finally...I finished the third one!
The last time I posted about this, I had just started stitching this border on the lower edge of a tea towel:
I was also considering different trims to use once this towel was hemmed:
I have finished all the embroidery and instead of using one of the trims, I decided to add a line of decorative stitching.
I measured 1/8" in from the bottom of the tea towel and using a water soluble marker, drew a stitching line parallel to the bottom of the tea towel:
Then I stitched a line of Double Knot Stitch. I used perle cotton floss, this is color variations by DMC #4130.
I think this looks so pretty! The line of Double Knot Stitch is a nice echo of all the French Knots in this border.
Here is a list of the floss colors and numbers that I used for my project:
