Here is one of the three tea towels using these pretty vintage looking towels and hot iron transfers by Aunt Martha's.
The stitch I used was the stem stitch and if you do not know what that is or how to do the stitch, here is the YouTube video that was a great help to me HERE. I used DMC floss, using two strands and three strands on the dots. Colors as follows: for the cherries and frame #321, leaves #701, dots #973, stems #801 and for the highlight accents on the cherries perel cotton #8 310 ( I think the brown used on the stems would have been the better color). Added jumbo rick rack that is 100% polyester. I did not have 100% cotton rick rack (hard to find) and I just used up what I had in my stash.
I write what I used on an index card for the next time and any changes.
Here is the iron transfers that I used and it is called Fruit Tea Towel #3510.
At my local Jo-anns store they have a few packages of different set of tea towels. I thought these would be cute for summer. I want to try their flour sack towels next. My local Jo-ann's they have a nice selection of colors.
I think for my next one I will be using one of the images from the Java Break #3997.
I will not be using this towel at the moment. I want to finish the other two and then add them to my towel basket. These make great gifts.
Today, it is rainy weather here in Southern California. A perfect day for more stitching. : )
Thank you for your visit. Have a great day.
