I bought these cool papel picado machine embroidery transfers from Debra I thought they'd make cute dishtowel embellishments. I jazzed up this set with rick rack.
This one got double layers of rick rack.
I made a more sedate set with the last set of towels. I machine sewed the buttons, I'm not sure it's much faster than hand sewing, but you get nice uniform results. Tip: use scotch tape to hold the button in place while you stitch it.
I'm keeping the rest of the motifs for myself. They'll be perfect for a little art quilt. Maybe something for the Day of the Dead.
