Sweet Stitches Hand Towels

The art of cross stitching is lost, I say.

LOST!

Okay, that little rant is over. 

These hand towels were my last project for Creative Bloggers Got Talent. I suppose I should have chosen a different project, since I knew deep down that the art of cross stitching has gone by the wayside, but I thought these were soooo cute.




After I had stitched these, I sewed them onto a hand towel and then added a ruffle embellishment on the bottom. 

You know, I don't think people know how long it takes to cross stitch. Let me enlighten you: it takes FOR-EVER. 


Oh well. If you want to try your hand at cross stitching, it is really easy, just really time consuming. 


By the way, I got the patterns for these guys from Wee Little Stitches.

  3. I use to cross stitch all the time years ago. It may take some time but I always found it a relaxing way to pass the time. Your towels are adorable.

  6. Cute! I have to admit, I don't cross stitch anymore since I got my embroidery machine. Why cross-stitch when you can embroider and wash dishes at the same time?? haha- these are great, though!! www.bearrabbitbear.com

  10. Those are so cute! I really like the salt and pepper towel. I love cross-stitching. I just finished a picture I've been working on for several years (okay I don't do it a lot), so I need to find something new to work on.

  16. I don't think cross-stitch has gone by the wayside, there's loads of us out there that still do it, and yes, it does take a long time! These are really lovely, well worth the effort.
