I'm getting a jump on some spring time gifts:



The towels were a Valentine clearance find at Target...$1.90 for 4 huge dish towels in red, pinks and white! The patterns are from Patternbee.com penny patterns.
Enjoy!

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

These are fabulous!  Your stitches are so lovely.  Did you have any trouble stamping the design on the waffle-weave towels?  These towels are always more absorbent, but I never thought I'd be able to iron a design on because of the ridges. . . any pointers for embroidering on this type of towel?

Thanks so much everyone.
Slickmaria- I got the patterns from Patternbee.com in the penny pattern section. (if you buy a pattern you can purchase one of them for... you guessed it... a penny)
Cynthasizer- It was not difficult at all to stamp or stitch on the waffle weave, in fact it was a bit easier to stitch because the towel is a nice weight.
Keep your eye out for these towels after a holiday!

They are sweet...I particularly like the chicks. They remind me of a little book that I scanned to make invitations for my daughter's second birthday...
