I just finished a Valentine's Day mini-tea towel. I had a small amount of this pretty fabric on hand, some pale pink rickrack and some pink color variations floss. I transferred this lazy daisy heart to the fabric and started stitching!
I am really pleased with the result! This little towel is only 7-1/2" wide - I think it will look really nice layered on a pink or white towel.
This turned out to be a really quick and easy project. I love to stitch lazy daisies. Here is a closer view, I also hand stitched the hem and rickrack:
The perle cotton floss I used is DMC #4810. I really love the color variation in this floss.
It is so many beautiful shades of pink and I think it goes well with this powder blue fabric.
Valentine's is still a few days away, which for me always marks the beginning of the end of winter and winter weather - however, we had a little bit of a surprise snowfall over this last weekend
It has been really cold - we didn't get too much, it was so pretty
and Rego really enjoyed it!
