Red Crochet Lace on Kitchen Towels

Hot off the steel crochet hook! Some lovely little kitchen towels. I recently purchased these towels and decided they needed a little lace. I posted both to my etsy shop today. These are really nice towels- 100% cotton twill weave. I may make a few more if time.
Also have pics of the project in progress. I wash and lightly iron both towel and lace edging before joining them. To join, I position the lace "flipped up with wrong side face up" above the bottom edge of the towel, then whip stitch them together using sewing thread. After sewing is complete, the lace simply folds down and then I lightly iron again. I like the look of the lace hanging from the bottom edge of the towel.
