Handmade Christmas Gifts: Embroidered Tea Towels

I am making homemade gifts for the women in my family. I am making them embroidered tea towels. Below are pictures of the embroidry I have done for the tea towels.

I also have a Carrot Seeds tea towel finished to match the Watermelon Seeds tea towel, but I didn't take pictures of it.

I will sew homespun fabric around the embroidery work and put homespun on the back. I will take a picture of the completed tea towel when I finish them.

I love making gifts for my family. I am also going to try to make some monogramed hankercheifs for my brother and Pap-paw.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Thank you for reading my blog and please come again soon! Please visit my store .
