AccuQuilt Hearts to Clover Tea Towel

I decided to use my hearts die for a four leaf clover design.  I cut out the hearts using my Go Baby and then the stem is from another die.  I also cut matching forms of steam a seam 2 fusible web.  I fused the applique down and then added two fabric ruffles at the bottom of the tea towel.  I've had these flower sack tea towels for a long time and I've been itching to use them. 

To finish it off, I added a two layers of matching fabric ruffles to the bottom of the towel.  I then added a  folded piece of fabric to the top of the top ruffle to hide the gathers.  I think it's missing a little bit of something but I'm happy to have some more of the Irish in the house for the upcoming St. Patrick's day!

Let me know if you are interested in step by step instructions.
Thanks for stopping by!
