Christmas Gifts for a friend.
Huck Towels are perfect for gift giving…and are very relaxing to create!
Put on the Christmas Carols, thread up a needle with embroidery thread and one or two hours later… a useful handmade gift!
The colors can be easily matched to kitchen decor, an eye-catching combination, or a friend’s favorite colors.
The primary colors in the towel to the right were chosen to match a friends Mexican pottery displays.
The pattern is a traditional Huck Christmas Tree design.
Back a while, I put together a quick tutorial on huck embroidery, which is also called Swedish weaving. That tutorial can be found here.
The simple design used here might are very simple. Please use them if you would like.
That is almost too beautiful to use!
Thanks! The Rule for Receipt of a Huck Towel as a gift is that they MUST be used. Towels like these that are for sale on Ebay and Etsy used to be kept in drawers waiting for that “special” moment – and were never used!
These are made to be used…if they get stained or worn…I get to make another!
I only found out about Swedish weaving a few days ago and I love it .the designs are great I bought fabric don’t want to spoil it so I’ll practice on a small piece of cloth till I’m ready .
Your work is beautiful. Question – can a monks cloth pattern be used on huck toweling?
The designs for huck toweling are also called Swedish Weaving – which is done on Monk”s Cloth. The designs are interchangeable as they work on both.
Yes, Monks Cloth patterns can be used for huck toweling – and they look beautiful!
I learned how to do Huck Weaving from my paternal grandmother and it has been many years since I have done it. I have been looking for patterns online and found your site so now I have some patterns to get started with.
I love the fact you describe in detail a lot of things. I have fabric but have been looking for some patterns to do. I still need to buy some Pearl Cotton as that is the best thread to work with.
