Free Project – Coffee, Tea, Me? Towel Topper

This Towel Topper is easy to make, and is something everybody needs.  Make a couple of them in advance, keep them wrapped up in the gift box, and you will always have an amazing gift on hand, that everybody will love.  I have been creating sets of these Towels for my nieces as they move out on their own, and they are lasting for years.

Requirements:-

 

Instructions:-

  1. Hoop your stabiliser and homespun and attach the hoop to your embroidery machine.
  2. Using your embroidery machine software, take the Towel Topper outline and your choice of design from the Coffee, Tea, Me? Collection, and place together, with the embroidery design sitting near the bottom of the Towel Topper outline.
  3. Stitch the towel topper outline in a thread colour that matches your homespun, and embroider your Coffee, Tea, Me? Design in colours to suit.
  4. Trim around the outline to ¼” around the sides and top, and 1” around the bottom.

  5. Stitch a second Towel topper outline only onto homespun (this will be the back of the towel topper). Trim as per above.
  6. Using a small straight stitch (1.7mm approximately), stitch around the sides and top of the towel topper, leaving the bottom open.
  7. Trim off the top corners, and turn the towel topper in the right way. Press.

  8. Take the press studs, and attach at the back through a single layer of fabric, and through the top through all layers.

  9. Take your handtowel, and if necessary, trim up one end to ensure that your towel isn’t too long.
  10. Gather or pleat the raw towel edge to fit the bottom edge of the towel topper.

  11. Stitch the towel to the embroidered piece using a small straight stitch and the guide line of the towel topper outline.

  12. Flip the exposed end of the towel up into the topper, and hand stitch opening closed.

Your towel is now ready to hang in the kitchen.

As alternatives, use the same technique, and monogram towel toppers to give a personal look to the kitchen.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, and I hope that if you re-create this project for your own kitchen, you will send me pictures.

Until next time, have a Stitchin’ Day.  Julie.
