Artist's Garden Embroidered Towels

Create the look of hand embroidered vintage linens. Combine soft, textured cotton toweling and a Sewing With Nancy machine embroidery collection to create gifts for garden friends, new home owners, or the soon-to-be-bride.

Supplies for this project:
Fabric —
∗ Each towel requires 1 yd. of 16" wide Barkcloth toweling fabric in Flax or Linen. Note: One yard per towel results in a 16" x 34" towel.
∗ The sides are already hemmed; you only need to finish the short ends of the towel.
Six colors of Barkcloth toweling fabric are available.

The Artist's Garden Embroidery Design Collection:
∗ Consists of 35 designs that include buttercups, bleeding hearts, aster, and scrolling sweet pea in washes of tranquil colors.
View all of the designs.

The Artist's Garden Rayon Thread Pack:
∗ The embroidered flowers will look as if painted with watercolors when you use this thread pack.
∗ Includes all 17 spools needed to make your embroidered wildflowers bloom.

∗ Rather than hooping the fabric, simply hoop Hydro-Stick Tear Away Stabilizer and adhere the toweling fabric to the sticky area of the stabilizer.

∗ Klasse Needle Embroidery 5 Pack — Size 75/11 (A6-18075)
