PRINTING THE RECIPE CARD
The recipe card is in a .pdf format with the files in each recipe zip. It's better if you use the Card Stock Paper. It prints up so much nicer and is like an index card. You can go to your office supply store and even get it in colors for a nice touch. I found some wheat colored card stock paper and I love how nice they look when printed
WHERE TO PURCHASE TOWELS
The most asked question I get is Where do you get your towels?
Some people have told me they go to Sam's Club and purchase flour sack towels. You can get them at Wal Mart or any department store. Another great source if you don't have these resources near you is online at Sewphisticated Stitcher. Click on her logo and it will take you to her site!
Here is a recipe design stitched out on one of the towels from Sewphisticated Stitcher. They turned out beautiful.
ANOTHER IDEA IF YOU CAN ONLY FIND TERRY KITCHEN TOWELS
Choose a woven fabric to co ordinate with your terry towel.
Cut your fabric and hoop.
Stitch your design on the woven fabric.
I would iron on some heat & bond to the back of the woven fabric after you stitch it. Cut around your stitchout and turn under the raw edges. Iron onto your towel. Then you can applique your edges or sew around the edge of your stitchout onto the towel for a nice finished look.
When washing any of the stitched towels. It's better to wash them and just let them air dry. You may have to press them if you desire. The dryer just shrinks them so much. It turns out much nicer this way.
