The This embroidered flour sack towel features a cute dog. This whimsical needle work on this towel notes that it is wash day. I am sure that the dog is not thrilled that it is wash day! Our little Corgi will go hide under the table when we say “lets take a bath.”

Handmade Sewing Project
This is my handiwork. I hope you like it as much as I did making it. Hopefully this blog post will inspire you today to create your own work of beauty.
This pattern is stamped on a cotton flour sack towel. It is not a cross stitch pattern, but rather a running stitch. There is enough detail to show the cute picture. This pattern is on the easy scale and I like to complete patterns that can be started and stopped without figuring out where one left off. Embroidered kits can be completed rather quickly too.
These whimsical towels are cute and useful. Handmade items are so often treasured by the person receiving the gift.
Package the towels together with a ribbon for gifting.
Press to Impress
I know we make these so they can be used. I find that I like to display them for quite a while before using them.
After completing the embroidery, make sure you press it with an iron that can steam. I use another cotton towel on the ironing board. Lay that down first, then put the embroidered towel on top of that with the stitching side down. Move your iron around every few seconds with the steam on. This will help create a crisp towel and make the stitches pop. It will look lovely hanging on display.
