Set of 3 cotton flour sack towels, each with a variation of a cheerful folk design featuring flowers & birds.

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

Each towel in the Tulips & Tweets set features a different, but coordinating, folk design to embroider. On the towel featuring the largest design, the design is centered at the base of the towel. On the other two towels, the corner designs are opposite the hanging loop.

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.

The towel set does not include instructions or thread.

You can find tips on stitching Tulips & Tweets here on Needle 'n Thread.

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!
