Oval Homespun Basket Liner
Need a quick and easy hostess or teach gift? A rag style applique on a homespun kitchen towel is adorable yet so easy and fast that it can be a beginner project.
Homespun towels are readily available many places online. They are similar to our homespuns but they are made with a much heavier weight fabric. Be sure to prewash your towel as well as any fabric that you intend to use for the applique.
Choose a simple appliqe design such a heart or star or go more complex like the gingerbread man shown to the right. Stitch your applique directly onto the towel leaving about 1/4" exposed raw edge. Make a few clips in this raw edge, especially in corners and curves. Stitch on any embellishments/buttons now or wait and glue them on after washing. Be sure to use a permanent fabric glue so your towel can remain beautiful after much use.
