A fun tea towel project
Lots to do today, but wanted to quickly stop in and share these photos of a fun embroidery/sewing project I did recently. This cute little vintage camper design is from the Camp Out! collection of transfers by Sublime Stitching. I stitched them up on flour sack towels for my friend J.'s birthday. She and her hubby actually own a vintage travel trailer, so it seemed like the perfect design for her. I trimmed the towels with a scalloped fabric border, my first try at such a technique, so they sure aren't perfect, but did turn out cute. I did the designs in two different color combinations, to coordinate with the fabrics I chose for the scalloped trim. Love the awning and the cute string of decorative lights on the camper!
Here is red: With its border: And blue: With its border: These were so much fun to make. Hope to do more for Christmas gifts.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
