I have a new stitching project in the works - an embroidered kitchen towel.
The towel is made out of white Kona cotton fabric.
I plan to embroider this seafood corner border and add trim tape to the hem.
My first step was making the towel. I cut the fabric with a 1/2" seam allowance and then hemmed the four edges with a 1/4" hem. And :) I mitered the corners:
Next up will be deciding my embroidery floss color choices. Then transferring the border motif and finally starting the embroidery! I think I will add the trim tape at the very end. This will keep it free from wear and tear and wrinkling from the embroidery hoop.
I will be back soon with part two.
