"Vintage" Tea Towels
At the beginning of the week I stitched up these tea towels for my cousin L's bridal shower gift. The invitation said to bring a recipe for the bride-to-be, so I thought what could be more perfect than tea towels with recipes embroidered on them. I found these designs from Pattern Bee, which is an online shop specializing in vintage embroidery patterns. I purchased the PDF downloads since I wanted them right away, but you can also choose to get them in iron-on transfers which I thought was neat. There are two more designs in this collection - Strawberry Jam and Chicken a la King that I haven't stitched up yet. I need to get some more tea towels first. I also purchased this bluebird collection. I couldn't help myself since they are just so adorable! There are tons of sweet patterns available, I know I will be shopping here again for sure. I've had a fascination with vintage linens and designs since I was a little girl so finding this website was like finding a gold mine to me. I can hardly wait to stitch up some more!
