Embroidered Tea Towels

When I saw that Ikea sells tea towels for less than a dollar each, I immediately grabbed a big stack.  I knew that I wanted to spruce up a few by embroidering designs that match my kitchen’s color scheme.  I embroidered California with a star for San Francisco and my roommate embroidered the apple and lemons.

Embroidery is super simple and easy to learn.  Sublime Stitching has a great tutorial for beginners.  Once you learn a basic stitch, you can start embroidering tea towels, pillows, clothing, anything!

My California towel took less than 30 minutes to complete and now it hangs nicely with my vintage and handmade aprons.
