A while ago I realized my boyfriend needed tea towels, but of course plain ones wouldn't do (he'd probably be okay with it, I wouldn't!)

So I embroidered some FOTC tea towels!!



The one end has words, the other has the picture!  This is the first one, which really was the last one I did.  It turned out alright, not great though!

They're all themed around food lyrics. I wrapped them so they're image side up, and he has to try to guess the lyric from the picture!!

Albie the Racist Dragon:


Sugar Lumps:


I'm not crying:


Foux Du Fafa:


Jenny:


I think they're pretty sweet and he's going to love them.  Some of the patterns I found from various locations on the web (sorry I can't credit anyone with them, I forget where I got them exactly) and some of them are clip art with faces. lol

Thanks for looking, I'd love to hear what you have to say about them!

i LOVE their little caricature-y faces on the first one, and the lyrics you picked are great.

Thanks for the feedback! (I live for it! Tongue

I wanted to make one using the "and maybe later we'll get hot by the refrigerator" lyric, but reconsidered when I thought about his mom seeing it. lol

Flight of the Conchords are 2 guys from New Zealand who are singing comedians.  I recommend checking them out on YouTube.  They're hilarious!
