To Do: Embroider Kitchen Towels

Hello Oh Happy Day readers!  That beeswax candle project is a great one for the holidays and here's another one of my favorites. When I need something special for a bridal shower or holiday gifts, it just takes a bit of time to personalize dish towels with easy embroidery.  I did this set over the weekend using bright flour sack towels from Cost Plus.

You just need embroidery floss, needles, a loop and a couple sparkly beads to get started.  Backstitch delivers clean, sturdy lines for most of these patterns. For the designs, I pretty much wing it - sometimes sketching out ideas in white pencil before starting.  I like that they're not perfectly even. 

The finished product can be used as a standalone gift or as wrapping around a wine bottle or other treat!
