It has been years since I have embroidered anything. My oldest son was a baby so that was like 37 years ago and these are some very pretty tea towels to make so I will have to pick this up again. I did not know about an iron on marker so this is a must have for me. What a great gift these will make and so easy to do with this great tutorial and bonus video. Thanks for the inspiration.

Stitching has been trending lately, and I can see why. This design is simple but beautiful. I would love to have something like this in my new and improved kitchen. I just might have to start up a new hobby to make this for myself. Thanks!
