After all the sewing and hand stitching of applique for a supposedly quick project I held the iron down on the hem a bit too long. OOps! Scorched the hem. Never burnt a thing before in my life (except dinner and maybe myself!).
Oh well! It's only a hand towel that won't last long around my family! I am pretty sure the guys in the house don't dry their hands with towels but wash themselves with them! The towels get so grubby so quickly it drives me nuts.
Here's pretty while it lasts!
Can you see the scorch mark on the spotty hemline just under the apple?
I have washed and washed the towel but the scorch mark remains.
I wonder if technology has come up with an iron that has sensors in it to tell idiots like me to lift off the iron? Maybe just one that chants "focus" may help my drifting mind! At least it wasn't on the quilt I am cutting out!
