Machine Embroidered Thanksgiving Hand Towels

Dear Friends,
I've been busy with some continued sports work for clubs.  It has been a nice trickle of business coming in.  Not to much to overwhelm me with the holidays fast approaching.
I've also been making a handful of these Thanksgiving hand towels for all the ladies in the family that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with.  It will be a houseful of hustle and bustle of activity and chatter.
Let me tell you briefly about the towels.  

This is a fun and quick project. I used water soluble stabilizer on the top and bottom so that the stitches would not sink into the nap of the towel.  The pattern for this is from Embroidery Library and I got the towels at Costco.  Just be sure to preshrink the towels first before embroidering on them!

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday.  We have so much to be thankful for.  God is so FAITHful and good!  I am so grateful to have been able to start this little business this year and for it to be steady.  This has brought me such joy.  Our daughter Katie is home from the Air Force for 2 weeks.  How wonderful to have her home!!

May you all have safe travels this week and know that you, my readers are in my prayers.  I am thankful for each of YOU!

Cheer Leading Hoodies

Here are the finished hoodies for the cheer team.  Take a look at the front.
And now......
Take a look at the back!

Such a fun zebra applique to add to the back of the jackets!  This applique happens to be called Landon and is from Planet Applique.  There really was no puckering of the fabric.  I just wish I would have smoothed it out more before snapping the picture.
Enjoy!  The cheer team loves their hoodies.
