A friend is moving into a new place this week, and I wanted to give her something that would personalize the space and (hopefully) make it feel like home as quickly as possible. I hand drew a design inspired by some sixties fabric onto a terrycloth dish towel. The design was finished using split stitch.



Closeups:




I probably won't stitch on a terrycloth towel again - the loops pull too much (as you can see in the closeups). However, I'm fairly pleased with the design and the colors, and I hope she likes it!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Terry cloth is so hard to stitch on, you did a great job.
