Valentine’s Day Applique Hand Towel

I made this cute Valentine’s Day Applique Hand Towel this morning. I know it is crazy to be thinking that far ahead already. The holidays creep up on me fast. I never get all the projects done that I intend on doing. I sold a few of the Christmas hand towels so I thought I would give other holidays a try too.

I made this blooming rose applique hand towel this morning as well. The blooming rose applique design is from Applique Alley. The fabric is Amy Butler. It has been in my stash for a while. My intention was to make a baby quilt with the Amy Butler fabric. I haven’t gotten there yet. :) I can’t decide if I want to advertise this one in my Etsy shop or not. It took a while to stitch out.

Last but not least is a picture of the pajama shirt I made for my husband to wear on Christmas day. On Christmas Eve we open new pajamas and our Christmas ornaments. The applique letters are from Planet Applique’s Santa Alphabet.

Christmas Hand Towels and Stockings

Just a sample of a few things that I have been working on this week. I had a few Etsy orders for some Christmas hand towels.

I embroidered names on the stockings for a lady using the A Pure Heart Font from Applique Corner. I also attempted my first in the hoop coaster. I bought the ITH design from Five Star Fonts Embroidery. The Monogram Coaster turned out pretty good and wasn’t all that scary to make. (Big Smiles). I get nervous trying new patterns. I don’t know why. It took me a few months just to get my embroidery machine out of the box. I was so nervous that I was going to screw something up. And I know those babies aren’t cheap. My next new project is an ITH eye glasses case that is an owl. I need to get a certain stabilizer first. It should be interesting. Wish me luck!
