French tea towels

I made a bunch for gifts for daughters because they are truly lovely and smart.  Proud Mum here!
I found  them in packets of 4 complete with red stripe french style.
I love the soft cotton, they are called bar cloths
I used fusible applique in different styles on them, and sewed cluny lace on each end for some vintage flair.
This one shows red toile cut into a square and zigzagged on.

Oh I love that fabric too Lilla.
Your girls will too - I can just imagine the swooning that goes on when they open one of your packages!
