I like posting ideas, it keeps me honest and makes me produce the item. This is a brilliant idea, came to me while I was in the dollar store. It involves this:

So did you get that at the dollar store? How big is the anchor. Give us measurements so we have something to work with while we try to quess what you're making. (Thinking boat cushions)

No, didn't get this from the dollar store, just happened to be there spotted some things with anchors and like most of us I thought I can do that! This one is 6 inches high and it is just a picture, I will be using the shape. Big purchase at the dollar store, I needed a graduation card :rotflo:

Of course, a lovely towel! I'm not sure if you are using this fancy as kitchen towel, or a bathroom fancy towel....meaning the people in the house do not use it.

I don't have any idea other than it'll involve an anchor :rotflo:

Okay, kept you in the dark long enough. I am making placemats with an appliqué anchor on them for dil that loves boating. I saw some dishes and glasses with anchor, while at the dollar store. So I think some placemats and some glasses would make a nice gift. Wish I had a bigger machine I would do towels also. By the way, I am making and keeping some placemats for myself.

What a FABULOUS idea, Nonie! You know, you could still do towels. You would just need to mark with long lines the center points. Then you could rehoop, repositioning the towel to add either the monogram or the anchor.
