I feel kind of guilty tagging this as a "tutorial" because it was so quick and easy! My dad gave me some tea towels (because well, you really can't have too many tea towels) and I decided to give it a bit of girly flair. I was inspired by towels that I saw at W's mom's house, and I thought "Wow, how easy would that be to make...!?" Plus, it can cover up tears, stains, or scorch marks when you leave your tea towel under your electric kettle and nearly set the fire alarm off and have to run the towel outside and wave it around in the snow...
Oh, is that just me? Anyway, all you need is a towel, some lace (I bought a spool of lace for about a dollar at Wal*mart ages ago: no idea why.) and needle and thread or a sewing machine.
Sew the lace in rows into the towel. For best results, pin the rows a little less apart than the width of your lace.
I wish I had some ribbon to finish this off! I think it would also look good mixing different types of lace, or maybe just add a lace edging along the very edge? So many possibilities! And I still have a whole spool of lace left! I wish I more tea towels.
