I love this new pattern i bought The best 2 bucks i spent in awhile:):) I now got 20 towels done with it:):)I want to tell u that it gets costly to buy wws for the backing So i go to the thrift store and buy sheer curtains for the back on top of the fabric ,lots of heavy stuff in the middle to hold the towel weight the one i am showing u was new in a package for a buck.It hardly shows and helps with the ware and tare of the topper,there is 3 heavy layers of tearaway in the middle +++(the last pic shows the back)Also the green one in the 4th pic i used 2 dish clothes (just had to try it) Here there in a pkg. of 10 for 5 bucks+++Thanks for LQQKING!!!!!!Hugs Carolyn

Hello my ole friend hugs xxxxx

I have been using thin curtain, I use a craft soldering iron, iron on the edges to take away hairs, also would use windcheater fleecy under hoop, cut away edges after stipple so they are not in the z z edging... ( thank goodness for thrift shops), our nearest sells all fabric pieces for 50c ...wendy

Awesome i to love that store lol what is windcheater????

Just as I got new sheers and threw out the old ones, along comes a way to use them in ME! Yes, I'm finding it costly to use any of my new huge hoops, so I rarely do any really big designs. I can understand that cutting through so many layers of stabilizers would make your hand sore. Hopefully, your shears are sharp! Your results are enjoyable and useful!.

Lovely work Carolyn, as usual.

Just a suggestion, (not a criticism), I would think that Cutaway would be better used than Tearaway for the simple reason that Tearaway tears as soon as it is penetrated by the needle so with the stippling stitch you would end up with lots of pieces of tearaway inside, all separated by the stitching, and this would degrade even further with laundering.

Cutaway, on the other hand, will remain in one piece and will stand up to the rigours of thousands of washes. Plus, cutaway is available in heavy duty and even very heavy duty for just such projects.
I wish we lived closer I could give you some to try.

Huge hugs and much love, Meg

Thanks i have a 5 foot roll of it lol hugs xx

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

I get mixed up as to is it a ripe away or cutaway when i go to use it ??I use the right stuff i just half to think more about what to call it Thanks for explaining to me hugs xx

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

I put picture above it is cut away

meganne by meganne 18 Mar 2019

It's easy enough to forget which one to use Carolyn
I'll add a link to Embroidery Library's Guide to using stabilisers here:

I often check this out if I am unsure so I hope it helps.
Huge hugs, M

by graceandham 16 Mar 2019

Spring cannot be too far away - my dogwood is starting to bloom. Your towels look great. If I ever get to Canada, I expect when I cross the border, there will be signs with arrows, saying "The Towel Lady, This Way". My find of the week was an 18" ruler for $2 at Salvation Army. I have begun buying the sheer curtains!

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

Well that's a great deal 2 bucks ++++I love the sheer stuff does lots of work 4 me everything i need is in the states and the dollar is only 75 cents here and the exchange kills ya ++++So we half to come up with other idea right??

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

I never write it here because i don't know how to tell if the site approves of it or not I am computer dumb Sorry U can send me a private message Or if anyone knows if it is ok i could right it here???

You could ask anyone of the moderators to find out if a site is abiding by copyright.

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

You guys could make a list on here for people like me but ya i know it is work ya i know so many sites to ya i know might be best to ask ??Thanks:):)

jbarrs by jbarrs 16 Mar 2019

I would love to know where you got the design.

noah by noah 16 Mar 2019

Send me a private jbarrs ok

meganne by meganne 16 Mar 2019

Anyone who sews could create this pattern Carolyn, I made several towel holders, similar to this, years ago.
The random stippling stitch is readily available in the stitch selection of several digitising programs and even on many embroidery machines. The satin stitch is available on every modern machine since 194?.
I doubt very much if the pattern is unique to one person.

But these days Cute requires you to make sure the seller doesn't have ANYTHING, ANYWHERE on their website that breaches ANY Copyright Laws ANYWHERE in the world. Almost impossible to police.

You have been busy again! I am with Kim and would use a leave in stabiliser for added strength. Love the style of these and you can use any towel with them and hang almost anywhere. Love the Variegated thread too

noah by noah edited 16 Mar 2019

I got lots of heavy tearaway in the middle for strength these are thick and my wrist is sore from cutting them lol

by dragonflyer 15 Mar 2019

Great job, Carolyn...interesting use of the curtain and probably less expensive than any stabilizer... but if you are cutting with pinking shears, you could really use most any stabilizer. No need to use WSS when cutting with pinking shears..

1 comment
noah by noah edited 16 Mar 2019

No that is NOT true Kim I could only have used this curtain fabric or wws because fabric and the nice stitching is on both sides +++So if i use white or black tearaway it will cover up the fabric and u won't see the sewing So only these two things could be used

by parkermom 15 Mar 2019

I would never have thought of that idea. Great job!
