Teatime embroidery


Lots of blogs I've been reading lately have featured pretty embroidery projects, so it was really just a matter of time before I did one myself. Recently I came across some lovely teapot iron-on transfers from Lace Tales, and I stitched this one on a flour sack towel I had been meaning to embellish.

The sample I saw in the store had a simple feather stitch design on the corner, so that's what I stitched around mine as well. Not a bad result for only two evenings of stitching, I thought!

There are eight more teapots included in the package of transfers I purchased. If you want to see more, go to Lacetales.com.

Beautiful work! I'm impressed that it only took you 2 evenings. You must be a quick stitcher.

I don't understand how this is done but I like the design a lot. I'd love to have kitchen towels or tea towels with this kind of teapot pattern on them. --Spirituality of Tea
