Tea Towel for Mom

Having a hard time deciding what to give Mom? Here’s a great idea!

Another of our wonderful Secrets of Embroidery Facebook Group members has created a beautiful towel that would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day. And, you could use what you already have on hand.

Jacki Bencomo created this pretty towel using the Summer Meadows 1 design set from Graceful Embroidery. The set has 30 different embroideries.

She combined several individual components of the Summer Meadow designs to create an art-quality border that was perfect along the edge of a kitchen towel. Thread colors were selected to match the fabric band that Jacki added to the towel.

If you do not have a towel on hand, dig out your stash and create one using a cotton or linen blend. I would launder both fabric and towel before stitching to prevent shrinkage later.

Old linens are particularly lovely for projects such as this. This is botique store quality in a heart-felt gift that will be loved and appreciated more than anything you could possibly buy.
