It occurred to me that some readers might enjoy blog post projects which do not require an embroidery machine. My Valentine "Kiss the Cook" dishtowel needs no embroidery. The twisted rick rack technique could be used with any novelty fabric. You can check out the details here. Also, in the topic menu on the right I have added a category for Basic No-Machine Embroidery Projects. Of course, many could be enhanced with embroidery, but are not necessary. I hope it is helpful to some of you.

Love this idea, Janice! I do have one question, though (color me dumb for the day ): What do you mean by "Free motion with monofilament and #60 needle over humps of rick rack."? I'm just not picturing this in my head (just getting over the flu, so be nice ).

MoDo, I take this to mean she sews down the points of the rick rack so it doesn't
flip around after being sewn in. That is an excellent tip! I like rick rack but don't like
the way it wants to turn up on the ends after washing.

You can also do little French knots on the tips, which is really beautiful and gives it
a whole different look. I was surprised by how heirloomy it looked that way, but
of course it's whole lot more time consuming than Janice's suggestion!

O-o-o-o-o-o, I'm loving the black and red combination along with the fabric and ric rac. Perfect for valentine's day.
