Mother's Day Gift

I made my mom a continuous hand towel (a la elsie marley) for Mother's Day.  My kids were quite happy to lend their hands for tracing and quite excited to see the outcome.  My littlest is just learning to read so she sounded out "hand towel" and then laughed: "it's a hand towel and it's got our hands on it and it's for wiping your hands on!"  Hehehe.  

I used two layers of this linen from and it's got a lovely weight to it.  I bound the whole thing in retro cotton lawn from  I added snaps to the bottom, and used black versamark and twill tape for the label.
