On the sixth day of Destashification Christmas, my needles gave to me…..
Several Huck Towels! The perfect Hostess Gift, Aunt Gift, Friend Gift.
Just a perfect gift for so many!
Colors can be made to match the recipients kitchen…or just fun colors to work with!
Huck Embroidery is simple to stitch (and if a mistake occurs – even simpler to take-out!)
The photos of the first three patterns (my own designs) posted within this blog are large so that anyone can follow the patterns. Two more intricate patterns can be found in the Stash Couture Huck Towels Post.
The beginning How-to’s for Huck Embroidery can be found in The Destashification Huck How-To Post.
I like to use thread colors that flow from lighter to darker or one color to another, but even a single color makes a beautiful – and useful – towel.
These patterns I just made up as I worked.
The Tree Variation is based on probably the very common Tree Huck Embroidery Pattern – it is usually done in greens.
Love the colors in the above towel. They flow from gold to rust to brown.
The towel to the left is design is No. 329 in Mildred V. Kreig’s Huck Towel Patterns copyrighted in 1936.
The black and white pattern photo from the booklet can be seen on the right side of the photo.
The weave of Huck Toweling has changed since 1936. The threads form a more elongated design than that in the booklet photo.
