Embroidery Tea Towels

15 Oct

The other day I pulled out the manual to my sewing machine and reading through it I caught a few things that I hadn’t notice before.  My machine has a memory key so you can group stitches together and make a repeat pattern.  Who knew?  You might just want to reread yours and see if there is something your machine can do that you didn’t know about.

Sew Mama Sew has a nice PDF for cute tea towels for you to embroider.  I like the white thread on the bright color towels.  These would make a nice, useful Christmas gift.StitchedBlooms2If you aren’t into hand stitching you could do this with your machine.  There are a lot of pretty threads out there to try, and most machines have decorative stitches.stitch

Or add a little fabric.  Look at this great retro design from Sew 4 Home.sew4home
