Sewin up some Love

I have been a big fan of Alicia Paulson over at Posie Gets Cozy for a very long time. When she posted a pattern for these "Pleasant Kitchen Dishtowels" several months ago, I just knew I had to make them myself...and I knew just the gal I should make them for: my pal Sus! I whipped them up just in time for her birthday.

And by "whipped up," I mean "laboriously struggled" for several weeks. hhaha. Ok, they were not THAT bad, but this was the first bit of embroidery I have ever done, and sewing the calico backings and trim was quite a bigger task than I planned on it being. BUT AREN'T THEY CUTE???

Getting ready for final packaging (the gingham fabric is just for presentation)...

Notice that each towel has a different trim and backing?

I think Thursday is my favorite.

But Saturday is pretty darn cute, too. ...sigh...


  1. WOW -- you seriously did an amazing job. If that is your first embroidery project, you have an illustrious embroidery future! Congratulations, and I'm so glad you enjoyed that project! xo

  2. These are so great! Definitely Saturday; oh, the happy gurgling sound of a stove top espresso maker . . .
