From Burnt to Beautiful

I noticed this the other day...
Yes, burn marks on my decorative dish towels. Hmmm how did that happen?? It looks like someone used my towel as an oven mitt. I don't like to place blame so I am not inferring Dad of two giggle boxes did it (although he is the one that cooks:)). I thought about pitching them. We have had them for 4 years, so it might be time for some new ones. However, we received them as a shower gift for our wedding and I like them, so there was only one option...cover the burn mark! I dove into my ribbon box and pulled out some brown grosgrain ribbon and decorative trim.
Pinned it onto the towel, stitched it up and got this!
I actually like them better than I did before!
