Years ago, I bought a kit for embroidered towels. I loved the embroidery, but I didn’t get around to doing it. Finally this summer, I got it out to work on. What a disappointment! The fabric for the towels looked nice, but it was polyester. It wouldn’t have any kind of absorbency as a towel, and it didn’t feel nice. I debated with myself for a while about what to do. I still liked the embroidery, but I knew it would be useless as a towel.
Finally I decided to do the embroidery and finish it as a pillow instead.
It has a simple finish with just an overlapped flap closure.
In the end, it is a nice project, although not at all like the original kit.
