Teacher Gifts 2014

This year everyone got a kitchen towel!
I gave Annaliese's teachers a monogrammed Stay-Put towel:
I cranked out 14 of these! I like to give a token of appreciation to each of the special area teachers that Annaliese interacts with on a weekly basis.
 I used I2S's Intertwined Vine for their last initial.
(My Stay Put towel is loosely inspired by the Topsy Towel tutorial posted on Embroidery Library. In this case I did not applique a square of fabric, nor did I square up the towel. There is a free V-shaped buttonhole design posted on Sew Forum that goes with this tutorial. If you are not a member of SF, it is free to join.)

I also made a Nameflake ornament for her two classroom teachers:
For the preschool staff I gave out the various holiday towels I had stitched throughout the fall. (Full design details can be found here)

Janay, is there a secret to how you hang the towel so that it looks so nice? Mine stitched out well but doesn't look nice when I hang it. I am not sure how to make it drape like yours.

Can you tell me how many inches from the point of the towel you put the V button whole? Thanks

Kathy, I followed the tutorial on Embroidery Library to determine placement

Janay, where did you get the towels for the "Stay Put" towels for the teachers? Thanks, Jackie
