Not that we waited until the last minute because we don't love our mommas....it's just the last minute because we are busy...and distracted...and procrastinators. But no worries - you can whip these sweet dishtowels up in about 30 minutes. Here's what you'll need:
1/2 yard of 2 different fabrics - I chose a nice linen by Valori Wells
some ric rac (or trim of your choice)
Step 1: Cut a rectangle 18" x 26" out of each piece of fabric.
Step 2: Press each side under 1/4" and then another 1/4". This will hide the raw edges.
When you come to a corner - miter it like this:
Step 3: Once all the edges are turned under and pressed, top stitch around the entire towel.
Step 4: Pin the ric rac along the bottom edge of the towel.
Then topstitch it on. Now you have a nice little gift for your momma.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
