On a Sunny Day by Fasani
This is a simple project made by using the zig-zag or satin stitch on the sewing machine. Place an old washcloth on thin towelling fabric and cut around it. A fourth yard should yield several wash-cloths. I am making them in green and yellow and white, as well, but the above picture shows what I have finished.
After cutting the cloth the size you want, place your machine stitch settings at the widest and longest stitch, and as close together as you can without getting it tangled and bogged down. I used 1.5 , which is close to the satin stitch. I went around the cloth twice in the wide zig-zag and got good results.
Then I clipped a little rose from some other fabric, which you see, above, and stitched around it in the same way.
These make quick gifts and could even be used for napkins if you have a large family and do not want to buy paper napkins.
Towels, using the same technique.
Other pieces of thin towelling, right, and a left over piece of calico on the right. I plan to cut out some of the roses and place them on the edges, as I did with the coral ones, at the beginning of this post.
