Our family's motto is to go "Green" as much as possible. I have 7 May birthdays coming up for our family members. I have been stitching each person's initial with motif according to their interests or personality and stitch onto a bath towel as a birthday wrapping paper. Inside is a gift for that person....... tied with jute string at each ends. This is an example of what I am doing. "A" is for my grandson, Austin. He is into dinosaurs so I stitched a small dinosaur next to his initial. It is hard to see the motif with the light reflecting off of the camera.
