Stitching Tea Towels

It’s been a busy weekend sewing baby quilts and mini wall quilts for my shop, but I had to finish these little cuties first so I could give you a sneak peek.

I love tea towels and have been stitching them for a few years now.  I use premium cotton muslin, hand cut, hand embroider and hand sew each one. I then prewash and press with a hot steamy iron for that vintage look and feel.

Cat Sugar Skull Ornaments

Hello kitty lovers! It’s nearly time for Day of the Dead and we can’t miss out on remembering our furry friends. I’ve been busy these last few weeks embroidering these adorable, one of a kind sugar skull ornaments. Hand cut and embroidered on wool blend felt which is fabulous to stitch on. I use combinations of 1, 2 and 3 strands of floss for added dimensions. So far everyone is different, with slight variations. I wanted them to be unique.

I’ve put in extra time this years to remember my little lovelies that have passed on. If you are interested in acquiring one or more for your Day of the Dead celebration or for your Halloween tree you can find them in the shop. Don’t wait, they are going fast. Here is a link. Whiskermeadow on Etsy
