A Monogrammed Hand Towel For Dee

Drawn thread hand towel with monogramming Class Title: A Monogrammed Hand Towel For Dee

Area of Study: Embroidery
Class Hours: 6

What a surprise for Dee to find a monogrammed towel made especially for her! This special linen hand towel is an opportunity to learn and practice basic hemstitching over several folded edges and double hemstitching dividing embroidered rows. Three sections of alternating square eyelets add unexpected charm to this handmade towel while a large padded satin stitch monogram anchors the center to complete this special treat.

Create a surprise like this for a very special friend by learning a few simple techniques that blend together beautifully. This is a wonderful opportunity offering you a chance to master a few of my favorite embroidery stitches!
