Tea Towel Cutwork Hems

Price: $15.00

Four different cutwork hem/border designs created especially for making your own tea towels! These cutwork hems range from approximately 1/2″ to 2″ deep, and they are nearly 14″ wide. If you do not have a hoop that can accommodate the 14″ width, each design has also been rotated and saved to fit in an 8″ x 12″ hoop. (For exact design dimensions, see DETAILS below.)

Step-by-step instructions show you how to make your own tea towels using these cutwork hem designs. The pretty cutwork hems add just the right touch of interest to a plain tea towel, but you may also wish to add additional embroidery!

Our sample tea towels are further embroidered with designs from the following sets: Vintage Vines, Vintage Vines in Color, Spring Festivities, Kitten Cuteness, Sea Breezy, and Fiori Eleganti.
