Cool I've never added a fabric band to a tea towel.. is it like only a stripe of fabric on the front or is the piece of fabric extending the length of the tea towel (so it shows from front and back) ?

I cut off the bottom hem of the towel and then sewed up the side and bottom of the fabric and towel (right sides together) and then turned it inside out and sewed the top and sides.  Used black on top and white in my bobbin so in front it is black thread and hard to see and the back is white thread hard to see.  So you do not see the fabric from the back.  Hope that helps.

Though ive never seen the show... before my generation... but i love the birds

This was before my time to.  I just love re-runs.

I am really glad you all like it.  I should have posted it here but last week I gave the towel away on my blog and have since made 2 more one to sell and one to keep for myself.  I think I am a bit addicted to the fabric more than the birds.  I am using it everywhere.

This is my favorite project so far too.  This is the first project I actually planned all the colors I would use and picked out the fabric and matched the colors just so.  I am thinking I might have to do that more because I really liked the results.
