Working with the linen cotton is nice because it has such a nice crisp body to work with. I cut some 2 1/2" strips for binding the edges out of fabric in my stash.
I bound the towels just like a quilt. Pressing the binding is the key to getting a nice, even look. I pressed the binding several times to get it to lay just right and then stitched in the ditch to catch the back edge.
It made a nice finish both on the top side of the towel and the back. If I made a little error, I just unpicked that part and restitched.
I love this simple blue, white and black towel. I used fabric from PKM's line to bind it.
I do like a gingham binding. This black and white complimented this modern/vintage design. There is so much color going on in this towel that I thought the black and white fit best.
They are all ready now to give as gifts. I have several more I need to do though. But for now I have 5 done.
Speaking of "done". I hate that "Done" Target commercial. I am never done with Christmas until 6:00 on Christmas eve. At least it seems that way.
