Making a Tea Towel

To make a tea towel, I cut up an old white linen dress of mine and L10.  It was plain white, without a pattern.  I hemmed the edges, just like I did when we made the curtains.  This time, though, all four edges were hemmed.  I then decorated it using the thread I had used for the dish cloths.  It was a simple decoration, using only a straight stitch, but took ages because the material was hard to push the needle and thick orange thread through.  It was worth the effort:
