Sweet embellished kitchen towels

Photo and design by Shannon at Eat Sleep Make
You all know I love dish towels, right?  I've had this idea on my list for Christmas crafting for awhile now, and just might make one for myself.  Shannon, from Eat Sleep Make,  shares her fabulous idea for Grandma's Kitchen Towels, an Anthropologie knock-off.  Aren't they adorable?

You can see the Anthropologie design on the left and Shannon's on the right.  I actually think that hers is much prettier.  I love the rose fabric that she chose for her applique.  Motifs cut from a vintage sheet might also be pretty.  A blanket stitch (in red here, on both towels above, although you could choose any color that goes with your fabric) adds a fun and distinctive touch.

Have fun with this idea!  I hope to!


  1. So pretty and there are so many beautiful fabrics out there with lovely designs that you could use even make matching placemats and napkins. I must take a sewing class!

    1. Oh, great idea to make placemats and napkins, Pamela! You are right, too, so many great fabrics to choose from!

  2. I agree...her's is prettier, lol... Good idea!

  3. So nice to have you all here, ladies! I really hope I can find time to make some of these.

  4. Her towel is the prettiest!

  5. I agree with you, Vee! I'm pretty sure that I have some fabric on hand that would work well for embellishing. Probably not this year, though!

    I am happy to see that you checked out Christmas in July. I'm going there myself sometime today. So many good ideas just languishing there in the archives! I know I've forgotten 75% of what is posted there.


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
