I've gotten some great feedback on my Bad Ass tea towels.  For that, I thank you!  

If you're late to the game, I take tattoo type embroidery patterns and hand embroider them on flour sack tea towels.  I love the contrast between the edgy design and the classic kitchen towel.  
You can see some of my previous posts here, here, and here.  For the month of July I'm trying to see how many of these towels I can make without stopping all daily productivity like working, yard work, house work, etc. 

Anyhow, I've gotten a few emails from people asking where I find my designs.  The answer to your question is Urban Threads.  
I LOVE their website.  If you go to my Stitchery (Embroidery) board on Pinterest, I swear most of it is filled with Urban Thread patterns with a sprinkling of traditional designs.  UT's patterns are only about $1 each.  Not bad at all, right?!  Some even come in packs and  end up being even cheaper for each design. 

UT's site doesn't stop there.  They have a blog, machine embroidery patterns, craft tutorials, and stock photography/designs.  You should totally check them out.  

Don't sew?  Don't worry.  Think outside the box!  You can also use their patterns for things like painting projects, wall murals ideas, or on pottery projects like this platter I painted.  

I'll be busy stitching away under the cool air my air conditioning this weekend...after I mow the lawn, of course.  Have a great weekend, all!

PS:  I'm toying around with the idea of sewing a set of two for my first giveaway.  Thoughts?

  1. YES to the giveaway idea, though I seriously think you should just skip the whole "giveaway" part and just send them to my apartment.

    Deal? Deal.

  2. What a cute little towel! I love the colors!

    I awarded you with the versatile blogger award! Check it out in my post from today!
