I stitched this with a dear friend in mind. I am also making another for a family friend. The next one will be added to a gift basket with other homemade items.

    I like that. I am no good at cross stich unless it's marked out on the material.

    I love the waffle texture of the towel and the softness of the colors in your stitching. I would love to attempt this idea. Thanks for sharing!

    I got the towel at the dollar store. They have a pretty good veriety in the towles they have. I was pleasantly shocked.

    I used waste canvas on the tea towel. The alphabet is one I created just for this project on graph paper. The cups came out of a magazine that I subscribe to. So there really isn't a pattern.

    Most of my tea towels stitches were 130 squares by 40 squares.

    Thank you so much for your response. I have some magazines with some lettering so will try that along with the waste canvas. Gratefully, Trish
