Got a lot done!
Oh Boy Carolyn you certainly have been busy, just loved them it looks a lovely pattern. I have messaged you for the details if you do not mind
No problem i answered you hugs from Canada!!!
Great job !
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????
sweater made of fleecy backed fabric
ok i get it bow thanks:):)
Love them Carolyn. A dandy job you have done!
Ahhh thanks my friend how are u ??hugs xxxx
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!.
no my shears need sharpened and so do i lol i have a bad wrist as i do a lot of heavy manly things as my hubby is blind But i gotta do it anyways hugs
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
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
I put picture above it is cut away
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
Oh wow that's awesome thanks:):)
Is there away to send this to me so i can print it????I can't do it???
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!
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??
You sure have been busy. These are all lovely. Like your money saying idea as well. Hugs
Thanks my friend What u been sewing???
Wow you have been busy. Love all the pictures. Great selection.

What a great array of towels.....great job....
Thanks Vicki hugs
Where did you get the pattern??? Love it!
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.
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:):)
I would love to know where you got the design.
Send me a private jbarrs ok
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.
How do I send a private message here?
jbarrs, if you look at the top of the page you will see Q&A, if you click on the Q&A link it will take you to that section, scroll down until you find instructions for using the PM function. hugs n roses, M
Great work Carolyn! I love them all!
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
I got lots of heavy tearaway in the middle for strength these are thick and my wrist is sore from cutting them lol
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..
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
