No Sweat!

I finished my gift for our martial arts teachers. I bought simple white handtowels and embroidered pithy/appropriate sayings on them. These say:

"Sweat saves blood."
"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea." (for our Irish instructor)
"I kick people for fun."

Not pictured is the one I gave out last night, "Sweat is the cologne of success."

I tied each one with a black ribbon, in a traditional black-belt knot.

Since these are plushy towels, they were about $5 a piece, still not bad for a teacher gift!

Those are brilliant! I bet they are a huge hit.

I can't believe you actually made these! Fantastic. You'll have to let us know how they went down.
