Embroidered Tea Towels

These sashiko inspired tea towels are one of the few things I made as gifts for the Christmas season. In order to balance time with my family and the busyness that Christmas brings, I limit myself to only making a few handmade items.  Even then, somehow I still ended up not finishing until after the New Year.

My stitches are not uniform or straight, but personally I love the charm of that look. Also, adding running stitches to store-bought linens would be great for a simple face lift. I need to find a gift system that allows for a couple of leftovers. I definitely want some of these for myself!
