embroidery: tea towels for corrie

we gave these tea towels for corrie's christmas present. 

















































one of my favorite parts about this project was picking out the complementary fabric for the back side of the towel.  not only does it cover up the stitching, but i think it adds a little pizzazz to the embroidery work (emma actually picked out the fabric for the veggie tea towel).

Very cute Prasti. I love the idea of attaching a coordinating fabric to the back. Mind if I steal that idea? I have some presents that I'm working on.

I love this, Prasti! So fun and creative! I'm glad that Emma is being exposed to the craftier side of the world. I was always glad that I had my grandmas to do crafts with me and encourage these arts that people seem to have forgotten about. Keep up the great work :)

These are beautiful! I am always in awe of embroidery work. It is something I've always wanted to learn how to do.
