Where do you find inspiration? Oftentimes it’s right under my nose—or in this example, in my kitchen drawer!
This flour sack towel was hand stitched by my great grandmother. My mother gave it to me when I moved into my first home years ago. The simplicity and the cheerful colors make the towel charming!
While it’s hand stitching, there are similar designs you can machine embroider. Take a look at what I uncovered on the web.
Sunbonnet Sue Collection from Amazing Designs
ABC (#CK108) from Embroidery Online
Days of the Week Tea Time Birds (Vintage) from Embroidery Library
