Completed this embroidery experiment on an old handtowel.
Lesson learned AFTERWARDS: When embroidering on looped terry cloth, prepare fabric by ironing the towel in one direction to "smush" down the loops.
- The circles were drawn on with water soluble ink pen using coins as template.
- Stitches employed: split, satin, running, backstitch and interlaced running stitch.
- Lime green embroidery floss and aqua heavier pearl cotton.
(The grosgrain ribbon actually matches the floss but appears darker.)
