Silly Chicken Dish Towel

Yesterday I bought a couple packs of white dish towels because I wanted to embellish them.
I was going to do some hearts, but then I came across a lone silly chicken block that was already completed and thought I would use that instead.
I did not want to just sew the entire block on the towel, so I cut around the chicken
and just used a satin stitch to attach him.

I added some finger-pleated fabric at the bottom and a row of ric-rac above that.

In just a short time my towel was complete. This is what it looked like straight out of the package:

It was a quick, fun and inexpensive project. The towels were on sale at  K*mart, 2 for $3.  I think I will go back and buy a few more this weekend. 

I have posted the source for the silly chicken block a few times before. It's another freebie from Quilter's Cache. You can get it here.
