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.
The second towel is done in a pattern I call Mother.
It has a center star – from which radiating stars expand outward. The stars represent a mother’s children – her stars.
Within the center star is the watchful eye we mothers always keep on our children!
Well, that is a lot of heavy thought for a dish towel design! Don’t tell anyone – we mothers need to keep our secrets!
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 designs used here might are very simple. Please use them if you would like.
