I'm starting to learn embroidery and my mom asked that once I get going if I'd make her some hand towels and tea towels.  I asked her what sort of designs she would like and she requested things that are whimsical/comical.  Because I'll still be a relative beginner I'd prefer things that are fairly simple.

I've been searching around online and have found some things, but I thought I'd ask incase anyone had a really good idea. Smiley

I like the Aunt Martha's patterns.  They have a lot of vintagy-kitchy stuff.

My grandmother always used coloring books for patterns.
She would trace them off on to tracing paper then use carbon to put it on fabric.
Just a suggestion.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "WOW!! -- What a Ride! -- Anonymous

Aunt Martha is everyone's favorite.  Google : Colonial Patterns, to get their website.
