goople translate says: tea towel = dish towel (may or may not be festooned with embroidery, ruffles, lace, or other goo-gah)
See, cowcharge, no glamping required!
Actually, we always called it a tea towel if the fabric was linen. Those were the best ones and were always used for the good glassware and (gasp) china teacups. It was what girls growing up in the 50s and very early 60s learned to embroider on. Then you graduated to pillowcases, then to cushion covers, etc. Now, except for some intrepid souls, most embroidery is done by machine.
Tested a small version of my new embroidery design. I usually test on scrap muslin but I put this one on a cheap "hand towel" that I could use, even if I didn't like it. I plan on making some flour sack type dish towels with my trailer on them. Toying with the idea of dying the material teal and putting my peachy pink trailer on it.
The trailer is not level, lol because the photo that I used to draw it from wasn't level. Guess I'll fix that.
Yes, I drew the design and turned it into an embroidery file and uploaded it to my machine. I have two embroidery machines. Not as simple as it sounds. It's like drawing in a primitive paint program and then selecting the stitches and colors. This one took me about 3 hours last night. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes to embroidery. I have single needle machines so I have to change thread colors each time. I have a 4x4 version, too.
