    Preface:
    This project is a seasonal kitchen towel featuring a Jacobean floral circle design.  A border was made using complimentary fabric.  A sewing machine was used to add the border to the towel.  The embroidery design was enlarged slightly to approximately 4.5" x 4.5" using Embrilliance Essentials software.  Fabric measurements are based on a towel size of 20" x 28".  Measure your towel and add 2" to the length of your fabric.
