1  Re: Your Ideal Tea-Towel? in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by ilovepaper on: March 25, 2007 01:58:43 PM
OK, I'm all done.

I decided to do something that wasn't from a pattern so that I could see how easily it would be to trace through the towel. I thought I would need my light box but I didn't, it was very easy to see a drawing done with a thin sharpie. I tried a big chunky chain stitch, french knots and small stem stitches and it stitched like a dream. It stayed nice and tight in the hoop and gave the needle something to bite into. I had to add some rick-rack because, well.... I have a rick-rack addiction and it wasn't even an option. I love the towel and will love it even better if it has a nice price tag.
You will notice that the word from is a darker shade of red. Good lighting is very important kids! I realized this morning that it was the wrong thread and I decided to just leave it rather than hold up the tour by ripping and re-stitching.

Aww thanks everyone. This was very easy to do and it was dumb luck that it fit 8 basic crayons perfectly (It's around 8 1/2" x 11"). It can be adjusted to hold taller pencils and markers too.
I found that ribbon at Michael's.
I made this one for my little nephew:

This was a fun, easy and quick little project. I like to have lots of handmade kid's gifts on hand for last minute giving. I think it was the perfect use for this fabric.

I stitched up these little onesies last night. The patterns in the book are perfect size.

They were a great addition to the gift basket!

This was a fun and easy afternoon quilt to make.


I just rotary cut different width horizontal strips from 4 cooridinating fabrics, pieced on the machine, added cotton batting and a cow print backing. I machine quilted and also added the binding by machine.
Leo really loves it  Grin
