There's also this thread in the Needlework Discussion area:

Also, doing searches for stamps and/or coloring pages is a good way to find designs.

I've not embroidered on towels.

I'm thinking about this one.

How do you finish the backside of the tea towels??

Thanks everyone.

I don't do anything to finish the back side. I just try to make the embroidery neat so it looks good from that side too. I love the backs!

I don't finish the backs of towels - just embroider neatly and don't carry the thread for more than a 1/4", to prevent snags and pulls. You can run the thread undr other stitches to prevent long carries. I have seen people use wide ribbon and sew it from edge to edge on the backside to cover the embroidery. That looks o.k., but I worry about the way different fabrics shrink differently in the wash.

I wonder if huck weaving would count in this swap?

I don't really finish off the backs either.  Just try to keep it tidy.  I feel that add to the handmadeness of it!

Thanks to my fabulous swap organizer from my first swap, Elvissatx, I got my feedback already - Sooooo I just sent in my questionnaire!

This should be so much fun, especially if my friend and fellow craftster,AndreaDeniell, joins.
