It is strawberry tyme here in northern California! All the roadside strawberry patches have yummy, ripe fruit ready. You have to buy and extra box to eat all the way home in the car!
To celebrate, the FREEBIE tea towel design this time is a trio of fat strawberries on a Gold Stripe towel. You can print the design and get stitching with a towel plus the #8 Perle Cotton to embroider on our web site. The design would look great in RedWork too – quick to stitch too! Tuck your Strawberry Towel in your picnic basket this summer.
The fat strawberries in front of the towel are wool Strawberry Emeries. They are modeled after the traditional strawberry emery hanging on the vintage tomato pin cushions. The emery (a ground metal) will keep your pins and needles sharp. Fun to make for yourself and gifts, too.
Summer is really here now with sweet, juicy strawberries to stitch and eat….enjoy!
