Heart Warming

Here is a project that my mom and I teamed up on for the current November/December issue of Crafts & Things. Mom embroidered the designs on this tea towel set, and I finished them off with tags and wraps. The top right towel is wrapping a loaf of bread. It was so fun to work together on this. I hope we can do it again. 🙂 Crafts and Things is full of great ideas with easy to follow step-by-step instructions. You can generally find it at your grocery store or Wal-Mart.

  • Stamps: Heart Warmers – Kim Hughes Collection (Cornish Heritage Farms)
  • Cardstock: Kraft and light blue/purple (Prism)
  • Ink:  light dye based ink that will wash out after stitching and cleaning
  • Accs: embroidery floss & ribbon (May Arts)
