One of my favorite things to embroider are towels. I think decorative towels are a fun, subtle way to add a bit of whimsey to any kitchen (or bathroom). I found this cute star-studded towel in the Target Bullseye and I just new it would be the perfect backdrop for a patriotic themed towel.
Next, I was off to find a fun embroidery file. I found this cutie at CreativeFabrica. She is so sweet! Did you know they have TONS, I mean TONS of embroidery files? They do! I am a subscriber, so I can download as many as I want any time I want, but you can just buy one file, too. They are a great resource for so many digital files such as embroidery, SVGs, PNGS, Clipart, Patterns, Fonts and so much more! If you have the time, go take a look. I bet you’ll find a few things to add to your stash.
Once I found the embroidery file, I used my Hoop Master Mighty Hoop 5.5″ & fixture (my personal favorite size mighty hoop) and hoop to prep it for the machine and then it was super easy to load it on to the Ricoma EM1010 multi-needle machine. You can use your single needle machine as well.
I love to add decorative towels to the powder room and guest bathroom. I think they are an unexpected little touch that is definitely noticed and appreciated.
So grab the file and join me in the tutorial… let’s get started.
