Tea towels.

I've had this embroidery pattern sitting in my to-do-embroidery box for some time. Maybe since the last century.  And since I'm trying to bust stash and there's no time like the present, I stitched this pattern onto some beige linen and then made a Class Picnic blouse.

I got carried away and stitched more birds on the top yoke of the blouse and paired it with denim Puppet Show shorts.

I'm thinking tea towels.  The blouse looks like a repurposed tea towel.

I may unpick the birds on the yoke and perhaps it may look better.

Well, whatever.  There are plenty more embroidery transfers in my to-do-embroidery box so I'll give it another go on another item.


  1. I think it looks wonderful! How much of your stash do you think you've busted since you've started on this challenge? I was wondering about that this morning.:)


  2. I love, love the hand embroidery! But I wonder where those two birds got their twigs; the tree is bare! ;)

  3. Cindy; For some strange reason my stash seems to be growing since I discovered on-line fabric shopping! But have have used up quite a bit of the old stuff.

    Jenny Jo; I was thinking the same thing while I was stitching!

  4. As I take time to follow you I get the urge to go back to stitching and embroidery and possibly crocheting.
    Love these ideas you present.
