I made these napkins for a friend's birthday in March http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236986.msg2598601#msg2598601. For scraps I had some long strips and I'd just gotten a hem tape/bias tape maker so I couldn't help but make some using these scraps!  Then the tape sat there awhile.  Finally, I decided to use it to embellish some store-bouught kitchen towels for her.

Close up of the embellishment:

I used contrasting orange thread like on the napkins and one of the fancy stitches on my machine for one.  I'm not sure I like it more than the plain one, so I just did one.

The towels folded:


I think I'm going to do more of this!  I'm kind of obsessed with making the tape and I finally bought a new blade for my rotary cutter so it will be a lot easier to do.

Neat! I really like the embellishment. Even though it's an 'easy' project, the final effect is fabulous and looks very professional.

Thanks everyone!

QuiltersBlock: Exactly!  Easy, but so cozy and custom.

ruby_soho: Yeah, they aren't gettin these until xmas!  I'm starting EARLY this year.  It's the 1" maker.  I'd like to also get the 2", but I've only seen it online so far.  I'm not so good at neatly sewing the double folded stuff, so I thought maybe with a 2" maker I could make some wide enough for me to work with.

camilaustral: I really want to explore those fun stitches on my machine more.

HSG: Thanks!  She hates orange, but is stuck with orange counters, so I sneaked some in to both projects.
