Set of 3 cotton flour sack towels, each with a different design exclaiming the glad tidings of Christmas: Glad Tidings, Joy to the World, and Peace on Earth.

The towels are approximately 27" x 27", white, hemmed on four sides, with a corner hanging loop.

Each design is approximately 20 - 22" wide, centered at the lower hem of the towel.

The designs are clear and easy to see. They will fade significantly after one laundering and continue to fade with subsequent laundering. Further tips for laundering and care for the pre-transferred towels are enclosed with each set.

Please note that the towel sets do not include instructions or thread, leaving you free to choose your own color scheme and your favorite stitches, from simple to complex.

You can find tips on stitching Glad Tidings here on Needle 'n Thread, with an optional DMC color list.

Select your favorite colors for these designs and stitch them with a variety of stitches. The designs are versatile and open to many interpretations. They are perfect for learning a variety of stitches while relaxing with a simple project.

They also make great gifts!
