Embroidered Christmas Tea Towel
The holidays are the perfect time of year to learn a new craft or to perfect an old one—and this project is brimming with Christmas cheer. Keep it for your kitchen or make several to present to your loved ones. However you decide to gift it, this merry DIY will definitely land you on the Nice List.
You’ll need these ingredients to make this recipe for Christmas cheer: embroidery floss, needles and embroidery hoop, tracing paper, scissors, a towel, and a printed template (provided above).
Layer a sheet of graphite paper between the towel and the template and trace the design using firm pressure. (It’s much easier if you pin it to the towel.)
Here’s a sampler of the different stitches you’ll use. Did you know? Samplers are a great way to practice stitches without affecting the design of your project!
Once your design is placed in the hoop, it’s ready for embroidery!
