I don’t usually do a lot of decorating for Valentines Day.  One item I always have in my kitchen are holiday tea towels. Whatever holiday or season, I usually have a tea towel hanging on my oven, or I use one when I have coffee in the morning. My towel from last year was fairly stained so I thought I would try my hand at making some for myself and friends.

I gathered red and white fabrics and trim from my stash and set to work.
