1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What do you embroider on? I need ideas! on: July 07, 2007 10:00:40 AM
So I'm just getting the hang of embroidery and I want to embroider everything in sight...er, if I could just think of anything useful to embroider. I've seen a lot of tea towels, and I've stitched on some of those towels with the aida bands, but this seems so impractical to me - my kitchen and hand towels get such a beating, I don't want to waste the embroidery! Same for baby bibs and onesies - having no experience quite yet - are these really readily washable? Here are some other ideas I've come up with so far:

- pillowcases
- squares to make into a quilt or use in other sewing projects
- framed on a wall
- liner for a bread basket (sort of a variation on the tea towel that gets less wear)
- decorate front of photo album or journal

Any other ideas? I would love to hear them!
