For my very first embroidery project, I decided to embroider a tea towel. I made the tea towel from two muslin fabrics that I sewed together so that the back of my embroidery cannot be seen. In hindsight, I probably should have used a thicker fabric. I made the mistake of setting my iron in the highest setting and burned the muslin fabric. I was making this project at night (in our basement) so the lighting was not too good. After seeing my finished project in daylight, I was surprised to find the burned spot.
I used the pattern from the book - "Doodle Stitching" and added the little banner on top by drawing it myself.
|Here's the tea towel hanging in our kitchen.|

I only used the back stitch for this project. Maybe I'll be adventurous in my next one and try other stitches.
Till next time!
