Saturday Embroidery Project

A few days ago Geninne blogged a free embroidery pattern: a line drawing of one of her darling birds. I couldn't resist transferring him to a vintage style cotton tea towel and getting to work.

I tried to choose colors to go with the side stripes without being too matchy-matchy.

You can find Geninne's pattern here on her blog. You can find the tea towel here.


  1. A great design, stitched beautifully! 19th century designer William Morris would be proud of you - he said that possessions should either be useful or beautiful and in this case, your towel is both!

  2. WOW! just WOW! I love it! :) Could I use your photos to share it on my blog? I think everyone will go bananas over it!

  3. It is sooo sweet, Amanda... you did an wonderful job on that. The colors in the embroidery pair so well with the colors of the towel... Beauty & practicality all in one--I love that! :o) Happy Day ((HUG))

  4. What a cute pattern! I used to embroider and hopefully will have the time to do so in the future! Thanks you for the kind comments on my blog!

  5. This is a beautiful towel. Iv;e stitched on this kind of towel before and the edges are so wrinkly. Do you ever have this problem?
