Summer Flair....

Here is a sweet and simple idea for your next picnic or as a hostess gift. 


Simply take an old tablecloth...one that has served it's purpose and is no longer in use....cut a section - tea towel size.  Hem all sides...


Add a hexie flower....machine top stitch all around...


Add some ric-rac and perle cotton stitching...


How fantastic is that!

  5. Sweet! I'm digging through my linen cupboard now. Or .. I should say ... I'm digging through the cupboard in which my tablecloths are stuck in the corner. Love it!
