Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas ~ Number Two
Today's gift idea - embroidered flour sack towels. These are such a nice homemade gift...and pair up perfectly with baked goods, or pot holders, or kitchen utensils...the list is endless. Flour sack towels are relatively inexpensive (a package of 5 for $5.50 at Walmart) and can be adorned with all sorts of embroidery - by hand or by machine! For hand embroidery, visit the Needle In A Haystack Stitchery Blog for a fabulous tutorial and free design...and you can find more hand embroidery designs at YouCanMakeThis.com. The towels seen in the photo were done on my machine...and there are TONS of great digitized designs available, as well. The designs shown are from the Vintage Christmas Tea Set from Embroidery Library...also check out SWAKembroidery.com for more great digitized redwork. Whether you embroider your flour sack towels by hand or machine, they make a great gift and a wonderful addition to any kitchen!
