Fun Dish Towels

I've always heard that you are supposed to give someone a gift that you would like to have yourself. So, I've embroidered a few cute dish towels to give away as Christmas gifts this year. I love these chickens! I'm having a hard time letting this one go!
The little cats were fun. I added the fabric and ric rac trim to dress them up a bit. My goal for next year: make myself some of these cuties!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my tree, sugar.

I would have a hard time letting those darling towels go also. But then I love dish towels!

I would hate to use them because you put so much work in them... but I could show them off on the stove handle...*hint *hint

That reminds me... I have a towel with a rooster on it that doesn't belong to me left here at Thanksgiving... Yours perhaps?

They are both so cute. Usually when I shop it's one as a gift and one for me!

A lovely gift idea with a personal touch. I love them both. Bet you do find it hard parting with them, you will have to make yourself some too!
