I always put a little Easter basket together for my mother. "Always" meaning every year for the last 15 years. Which means new ideas are hard to come up with, but she loves cute dish towels, so I thought I'd make a couple up for the bottom of her basket. But, I'm not going to lie, I seriously debated leaving them hanging over my oven. She would have never known.
But anyway, these are pretty simple. They only took a couple hours to finish both. I used some light heat-n-bond and button-holed stitched around the whole thing. Hand-stitched, even, but that was only because I am a TV junkie.
As far as the embroidery- everything is backstitched, except the petals and leaves on the chick picture (lazy-daisies) and the eyes (french knots).
And they were the perfect addition to her basket! Happy (early) Easter!
