What a splendid idea. From time to time when shopping that the dollar stores I will pick up an item like a kitchen towel. Mostly they are during the holiday season and I will create hostess baskets as gifts. Now I can spruce up those dollar store items with a edging such as this one just to make it that much more special as a gift.

I really like this zig zag edging. I plan on up cycling a couple of pillow cases. As a rule of thumb, I do not spend a lot on the guest room linen just because it is just that, a guest room. What a great way to add a little pizazz to the mix by applying edging to make it look more expensive than it is.

Well, well, well! I have finally found the secret to how this technique is done! I see so many pretty towels, tea towels, flannel baby blankets, and hankies that have this pretty scallop lace edging, and not once did anyone explain to me that there is a thing called an embroidery awl.

I love this one! My grandmother added this edging to all of her lovely hand embroidered tablecloths back in the 1940's. I'm lucky enough to have several of her pieces and I bring them out often to admire her fine handiwork. She added this edging to a separate piece of binding and then sewed it on to the tablecloth. Her work was so fine and perfect!
