How to add Embroidery to a Towel

I am back with another embroidery project.  I used my Ricoma EM1010 embroidery machine to create personalized towels for the guest bath.

 

Now, I am not sure why Wrigley always has to get his nose into things, but he does.  Every single time I take a photo in this particular spot, here he comes.

 

So, why do I feel the need to add names to the guest bath towels? Is it just my house, or do your kids feel the need to get a new towel for every day that they are at your house?  I get it, they don’t know which towel belongs to who by the next day, so they get a fresh towel.

However, since I have added their names to the towels they are able to use their towels more than once.  It worked!  Simple solution.  I used my multi-needle machine to create the large names, but you can use a single needle embroidery machine like the one I have to create a similar design. I’ve listed the step by step tutorial that I used for this set below.  Keep scrolling to see my embroidery on towels tutorials with a single needle machine.
