NEW Freebie for May is Ready to Print

Print out and embroider your 5th installment in our series of 12 Fruits and Veggies to embroider on a pretty and useful tea towel from Dunroven House.


Fat green Bell Peppers are stitched on our Red Striped tea towel with #3346 Hunter Green DMC #8 Perle Cotton. 

Because it is so QUICK & EASY I copied the illustration onto Sticky Fabri-Solvy (as usual!) and was ready to embroider in just a couple of minutes.  Give it a try this month with your Free design.



When my embroidery is finished it is a treat to dissolve the printed (and stitched over) Sticky Fabri-Solvy with  warm running water in the kitchen sink.  It really does work!  Just let the water run on your towel and see the film float away in front of your eyes.  Don’t be stingy – use plenty of water and rinse after.


Happy May to you.  Make a quick Mother’s Day gift with our Free Designs.

New Christmas Freebie for you

It is now only 25 days to the BIG Christmas Day.  Whip up a few tea towels or make ornaments with our December Freebie design . I embroidered Santa holding a mini Christmas tree on a Sage Green striped tea towel.  He only took a couple of hours one night to complete.  A hint for you to speed your embroidery.  Thread a crewel embroidery needle for each of the colors in your design.  You won’t always be pulling the thread out and changing color.  This little cutie would make a great ornament too.  Just do the embroidery on muslin and finish in your favorite way.  FUN! I used our handy dandy Transfer-Eze to print the Freebie Santa and finger press on our Dunroven House tea towel.  The Freebie design can be put on your light box to trace directly onto the fabric – BUT – toweling is a little thicker and rougher than muslin.  Using Transfer-Eze solves the problem.  The smooth Transfer-Eze film put on your towel gives you a nice design line to see and a smooth surface to stitch on.  T
