This towel turned out so cute! I thought it would be fun to attach the larger rick rack with French knots and and I love the way it looks. BTW, my favorite stitch for monograms is the chain stitch. This stitch creates a thicker line, which I like. I often find ideas for monograms from this site called the Daily Drop. There is just this one towel because the knots were a bit tedious, but still a fun addition to the pink and brown set for the hope chest.

I've started the next kitchen set - a pink and brown floral set. The fabric in the background is for the apron. These have to be the absolute easiest dishtowels I've made so far and I like them a lot. They are very simple, but still cute! All it took was to sew down the edges of the eyelet lace and then thread the ribbon through. I've used this technique along the hem of pillowcases for my own linen closet and you may remember it on this sheet set for the hope chest. They are so quick that I think I will make some for me!
