I embroidered this dishtowel for my boyfriend, who is a big fan of the band Sleater-Kinney. I adjusted the contrast of a graphic of them from an ad in the paper until it was just black and white, like you'd do for a stencil, traced it onto the towel with a wash-out fabric marker, and stitched away!

Thanks for the kind comments. I left their faces until last because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to make them look normal, but once I went ahead was pleasantly surprised that the gals were actually reasonably recognizable. BF sent a pic of it to their web page, and yeah, Jordy, I hope they don't feel stalked! We're just fans, I swear!

I love it. Seriously, you could embroider different bands onto plain tea towels and sell them.

It would so cheer up my chore time!

seriously, likeholywine, it's so super wrong to sell band merch and pocket the money yourself.
