Halloween Embroidery Ideas For Towels

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry the flour sack towel before you begin this project.
  2. Iron the flour sack towel.
  3. Choose the proper size embroidery hoop. I used a 6″ x 10″ hoop.
  4. Cut six layers of the stitch & ditch stabilizer.
  5. Lay these on top of the bottom part of the embroidery hoop.
  6. Lay the portion of the towel you wish to embroidery on top of the stabilizer.
  7. Now secure the top part of the hoop to the bottom part of the hoop.
  8. Once the embroidery hoop is securely holding the stabilizer the towel, go ahead and attach it to your embroidery machine.
  9. Set up your embroidery machine, bring the design up so it is ready to stitch and gather all of the thread needed for this project.
  10. The design – on my machine started with the spider webs. They are meant to be black. I chose to use a glow-in-the-dark thread for them. I let the machine stitch both of them out and paid close attention. Once I knew the spider webs were stitched I manually stopped the embroidery machine and removed the glow-in-the-dark thread. I replaced it with the black thread.
  11. My machine did stop in between all the other color changes which made switching out the thread colors so much easier.
  12. When the stitching is complete, remove the embroidery hoop from your embroidery machine and shut it off.
  13. Now there is going to be some thread trimming that needs done and the excess stabilizer will need to be removed.
  14. Now your Halloween embroidered flour sack towel is ready for use.

Notes

Note: This design took approximately 80 minutes to stitch on the Brother ULT2001.
