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
