Tea Towels!

This past week I've been working on these tea towels.

I love embroidery, but I am not very good at hand embroidery.  My oldest daughter, Julie does beautiful work, but she didn't get that talent from me.   So since I got my embroidery/sewing machine, I'm trying the new easier way.  When I saw the Anita Goodesign design pack with these sweet old fashioned looking patterns, I had to do them.  They really look like I spent hours embroidering them, don't you think?!

And I love the rick rack.  I used the jumbo size and I did take the extra time to sew around both sides of the rick rack.  One of my pet peeves is seeing rick rack that has the tops of the curves falling down after washing!

So now that that project is done, what shall I do next?  All I need to do, is go in my sewing room and look at some of my "pigs".    : )

  3. They are Dunrover House towels, 19 1/2" x 24". Pretty good towels, not "gauzy" at all.
