I was really feeling a hand-sewing vibe, so rather than machine zig-zagging between towels, I hand stitched a blanket stitch at the end of all the hems, and then turned them twice and hand sewed them all down. They look super tidy and I am really happy with them.
Then a quick toss in the washer and a few minutes in the dryer, followed by a final ironing to dry them out completely... and they look great! The threads all tightened up a bit and made the designs much clearer and they look so lovely.
Now for the weaving porn - showing both the light and dark faces that give the fabric its name. They're all the same... but so different!
