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:
∗ Each towel requires 1 yd. of 16" wide Barkcloth toweling fabric in Flax
. Note: One yard per towel results in a 16" x 34" 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.
