I am making sets of linen drying towels for some of my friends who are really into cooking and all things kitchen…that would not describe me at all!
This set is for my sister, who recently moved to a new condo on the beach. Her color theme is …yep, you guessed it…blue!
I first drew pictures of fish onto washable Sulky. I got inspiration from Pinterest and tried to find very simple patterns since these are meant to be used, dirtied, washed, etc. Sure didn’t want to spend hours embroidering!
They are embroidered on rough linen and then sewn onto the striped linen. Linen gets really wrinkly, but it also softens up with use. They will last forever and they do not lint. Rough linen also has a nice smell of fresh cut hay.
I bought some larger striped linen that I am going to use to make her a runner for her table as well…would love to do an octopus or maybe some mermaids…we’ll see.
Thanks for looking.
