    Recipe T-towels

    I made 7 of these for a wedding gift for my niece. One signature recipe from each of her 7 aunties.
    I embroidered the recipe, a different red work chef, and added fabric bottom borders.

    What a wonderful gift!! I got a set of appliqued tea towels (no recipes though) when I was married 68 years ago and I still treasure them. Very Special.

    wow, those are great, I wouldn't want to get it stained, i'd cherish that.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What an intricate thing to do....did you have to trim those connecting threads between each character?

    I typed out the words in a way so the jump stitches were only across the bottom of the words so there weren't so many to trim. Not a problem.

    Those will be used for a long time. Unlike many wedding gifts, yours will be kept and loved.

    What a beautiful and thoughtful gift! If they were mine, I would never use them for fear of staining them. They would make great art for the kitchen framed.

    What a fantastic idea - I would frame them and hang them in my kitchen as heirlooms!

    Wow. It only took 2 hours to complete one including making the patterns and adding borders. It was very easy.
