Applique towels. I make these all year and I have gifted my daughter and my neighbor a towel for each month. I use many pattern sources , one of which I have included here. I also use my embroidery machine and patterns from magazines and books. Why not make a seasonal set of 4 to gift along with the criss cross coasters, or if you have the time make a set of 12, one for each day of the month, or just make one. Here is a sampling of the one's I have made. I purchase many of my towels from Dunroven direct since they do not charge shipping but I also try to get them at Ross stores when they are available.
