Neighbor Gifts Part 3


This next neighbor gift might take a bit more time and money than the previous two ideas but I still LOVE it. Grab some flour sack towels (or any other kitchen or hand towel) and spruce them up with some embroidery or a cute applique. Here are a few I made a while back with fabric scraps for wedding gifts.

Love Birds Applique Towels

Patchwork Towels

(Yes, I do have a yellow oven. Jealous? Yeah, me neither.)

Here are a few great tutorials and ideas on different ways to embellish hand towels:

Embroidered Hand Towels

Patchwork Towels

Birds or Monogrammed Towels

I love nerds (well, one in particular), sewing, crafting, blog-stalking, and being happy.


  1. I love the 2nd one! so cute with the different fabrics! =]


  2. I did towels and washcloths last year for neighbor gifts and they were a hit! I bought them at the “Day after Christmas Sales” the year previous, so they were dirt cheap. I just kept them in the boxes with my Christmas decor until I needed them. I attached this poem:

    This Christmas you deserve the very best,
    A present unlike all the rest!
    I considered a new car or an exotic cruise…
    But I decided on something you could really USE !
    Finally, I found a gift you would admire.
    I hope you enjoy your new washer and dryer!
    Merry Christmas!
