I really like huck embroidery, it's super simple to do, and it has this really awesome geometric-art deco look to it. I see a lot of hand towels with huck emboidery at antique stores, and I love all the patterns, but I don't really use hand towels for anything.
So my solution is, turn them into something I will use, like sewing accessories.
It's really fun to plan out how to use the fabric in a way that shows off the most of the embroidery. Also, I learned it's really fun to make a pincushion out of a paper towel tube.
I also found out what a good photo spot my sewing thread box makes.
