Caoimhe's towel

Tassy and I went to the 13th birthday party of a very special friend of ours. Mum recently appliqued Tassy's name on a towel for her birthday so that inspired me to make a similar one for Caoimhe (pronounced Keeve). It was the first time I've appliqued on a towel - it was a bit tricky, even trickier because you can't lower the feed dogs on my sewing machine, but I thought it turned out really well (if you don't look too closely!).

Happy birthday Caoimhe! :)

Yvette the towel is gorgeous. I love your fabrics. Looking closely at the stitching I see it is just as good as mine! I found it very difficult to do the satin stitch. Blanket stitch is so much easier, but the satin stitch looks better I think.
Love Mum
