Tea Towels



I've been inspired once again by Deb over at Homespun Living who first caught my eye with her redwork teapots and then again with her camper trailer.



I made this redwork tea towel a couple months ago and have completed another one to make a set. After seeing Deb's camper, I just knew I had to make it -- the perfect little Christmas gift for my parents who love to camp in their Mini-Wini. I'm hoping they'll take it along with them in the camper and think of me as they travel.

To think, I finished my camper-trailer project while rooting on the Family Favorite Football Team -- the Denver Broncos! And they won in the last seconds!! Yay Team!

If you like the teapots embroidery pattern, you can print it off free here at Ladies in Red.
If you like the camping pattern, you can find the pattern at Sublime Stitching.

  1. Jody,

    Cute, cute, cute! I think the rick-rack at the bottom adds a 'special' look. Not only are they cute, you had fun in the process!

  6. SC, I really like the ric rac too. I think it gives a vintage feel to it.

    Michele, it IS nice to have something to do with my hands while watching football or riding in the car.

    Storybook, I'm really fond of the camper too.

    Ribbonwiz, I never thought about "I Love Lucy!"

    Sombra, thank you for the kind award!

  7. I really like both yours and Debbie's lovely tea towels very much. The camper is a charming pattern, and your folks will love it.
    I love my apple corer, peeler thingy. Mr. Stagg's favorite dessert is apple crisp, so I use mine a lot too.
    Jody, your blog is really wonderful. I sincerely enjoy my visits here.

  8. Mrs. Staggs, I'm so glad you call your apple corer-peeler a "thingy" because that is one of my favorite words. It's so useful! and so is the tool-thingy. Thank you so much for your kind comments. Come back soon!
