Embroidered Tea Towel with Child's Drawing
Writer, blogger, Mum-of-two. Advocate for sustainable fashion (recycled-fashion.com)
Create a kitchen keepsake of your child's artwork by embroidering drawings onto tea towels, cushions, pillowcases or other soft furnishings.
Embroidered Tea towel with Child's Drawing
To do this, you will need:
Fabric (tea towel, cushion etc)
Baking paper or tracing paper
Trace over your chosen drawing using baking paper or tracing paper and a pen.
Pin your traced drawing onto your chosen spot on your fabric.
Pin traced drawing in place
Use your embroidery needle and thread to back stitch a straight line right along your traced drawing, straight through your pinned baking paper and fabric.
Sew a back stitch straight line
Once finished, tie and cut your loose ends of embroidery thread on the back of your fabric.
Tie loose ends
Gently pull away your baking or tracing paper, use tweezers to get little pieces out if necessary.
Pull away baking paper
Using the same technique, you could embroider onto almost any type of fabric, even clothing if you wish.
