Friday Finish!


Yesterday I decided to try another  tea towel. I used a design by Buttermilk basin so I could make a fall towel for next month. I reduced the design by 20% to fit the towel and sewed it one with a blanket stitch. One thing I am noticing is the towels are bright white, so I might try tea staining one to see how I like it, then I can do some with primitive stitcheries with christmas designs as gifts.

The towels are Aunt Martha's and with a coupon, well worth getting and easy to work on. I might just stain this one with tea, might give it a more prim look. The wool is prim, but I have to lighten it, so you can see the details.

My towels become 'prim' with use :-)

I was just thinking the same as Libby's comment. When mine get tea stains I throw them out. Your design looks lovely.

Love the towel. How well do they hold up? Can you actually use them or are they more for decoration?

The wool has already been felted so I guess it wouldn't shrink in the wash but would the tea staining come out in the wash?

Thanks
