When my BFF told me how she loves the embroidered kitchen towels that I gave her a couple of years ago. This made me think of getting back to embroidering again. I started shopping for towels and cannot find them at fabric stores or other store. Of course when I ask Jeff to find some online, he immediately found some good deals and ordered for me. Now I have them whenever I need to do a few for gifts. My first project will be for Rose and I already have the designs for both towels. The next one is for my BFF's daughter who lives in Vancouver. She is moving to a new home in September and I thought it would be a perfect house warming gifts. Here's how I start these towel projects. The completed product will be posted if I finish it by the time this date comes, if not, the date of the post will be change to accommodate for the time to complete the embroidery.
|First I search for a design online.|
|Next is getting the towel ready, basically ironing it flat.|
|Tracing the design on paper in order for me to retrace it to the towel and I personalized it by adding an initial.|
|Now the towel is ready for my embroidery. Sometimes picking thread colors gets tricky.|
