Redwork on terry towel... Would this work? or what should I do to get the nice dayly free design of this site on a terry towel??? Thanks for the nice designs and for your answers! Pat

Pat, it sounds like you have the answer - so I will give you a *.

I have done it on very short pile.

Pat, I'm with BikerMom, I think redwork on terry, unless it was really cheap, thin terry, would get lost. When doing toweling, you put topping over the loops so the stitches don't sink in. Redwork is so 'light' the topping just wouldn't stay under the stitches. If it has to be terry, I'd try the applique patch like BikerMom suggested. Maybe others will have better ideas. Oh, just FYI, I LOVE the way redwork comes out on floursack kitchen towels! Hugs, Marji

you can do redwork on a towel, but it won't be really visible since the nap will eventually fold over the stitching. You could always stitch it on a coordinating fabric, then applique the 'patch' onto your towel, that's what you usually see in the stores....hope this helps.....
