Dish Towel Pillow: Laister’s Phoenix Firebirds

After serving at the General Federation of Woman’s Club of North Carolina State President from 2012-2014, the 50 GFWC State Presidents formed a National Club: GFWC Laister’s Phoenix Firebirds. To celebrate, I embroidered a dishtowel with a Phoenix and our club name for each of the State Presidents, and an Apron for our 2012-2014 International President, Mary Ellen Laister.

Rather than use my towel as a towel. I made it into a pillow.
