What kind of towels can be embroidered?
Thinner towels such as flour sack and tea towels work best for light-stitching, open designs. You can use a layer of tear away stabilizer adhered to the back of the fabric with temporary spray adhesive for these projects.
Should towels be wash before embroidering?
Wash and dry the towel before embroidering on it. Terrycloth is cotton, and it will shrink. It’s best to get the shrinkage out of the way before embroidering. A template is a printout of a design, and it’s an excellent tool for planning where to stitch.
