Dish Towel Tutorial - November Edition: Vintage Elegance - 12 Months of Pretty Kitchen Towels

Here is the latest in our 12 Months of Pretty Kitchen Towels series - November Edition: Vintage Elegance. 

In this design, Vintage Lace Trim is incorporated into the unbleached muslin dish towel.  A pretty chocolate brown ribbon, a blue ruffle, and gold embroidery leaves and the month "NOVEMBER" create a warm feeling of vintage elegance.

See the May Edition: Ribbons and Ruffles Dish Towel Tutorial for full instructions on creating your own basic dish towels from muslin fabric.

To add the lace and ribbon together, simply press a straight line across your dish towel, pin together, and sew as shown in the photo above.

The embroidery on the ribbon was done by machine.  I think it would be lovely as simple hand embroidery work, too.

The blue ruffle in this towel matches the valance posted in the Kitchen Curtains and Valance Tutorial.

  1. I love it! I read the curtain tutorial too. I have some vintage lace I didn't know what to do with. Now I think I see a project in my near future!
