Johnson "J"

Click on the photos to see closer.

I'm embroidering hand towels with the Johnson "J" for my Dad and his Wife for Christmas. Here is the first of the set I finished last week. Three more to go! My Dad and Joyce Hope love bright colors so I chose 4 different bright colors in their style. I call their style "Flower Power Shabby Chic"! I'm making the towels washable so that they will be completely usable! The floral letter is 6 inches and from Ribbonsmyth's Victorian Monogram Initial CD I just printed out the letter, traced it onto Solvy and placed it over the terrycloth in a hoop and stitched it in. When it's finished, I tear most of it away and then soak it in cold water to get rid of the rest of the solvy.
