I can not even begin to describe the number of cool, unique things I discovered on my trip to Thailand.  In the particular town where I stayed there was a nightly market – which was a huge bonanza of local crafts and cheap trinkets.  Thanks to the night market I brought home an entire extra duffel bag full of momentos.

Anyway – one item I discovered at the night market were these little towel / burp cloths that came with a cute hand-made toy ring.  I picked up several of these for about $3/piece.  I think they make a great baby gift.

One issue I ran into when trying to embroider on these cloths was that the material was very cheap.  I ended up destroying one of them by not backing it sufficiently prior to embroidering.

So what if you can’t make it to Thailand to get some great items to embroider?  In China Town in many cities there are oodles of shops that carry linen and cloth items that are perfect for machine embroidery.   (See previous post re: orange placemats from China Town in Vancouver).   Happy Asian shopping!
