We embroiderers love to share our beautiful embellished items during the holiday season! What better reason to give our friends and loved ones some “pretty new towels” for the occasion. It’s hard to argue with the luxury of giving a custom embroidered towel paired with a bottle of wine or plate of homemade cookies! If you have less than an hour to stitch up a hostess gift, a quick customization job may save your social status. Look through your design stash; you’re sure to find something easy to customize and stitch on the forgiving canvas of the humble kitchen towel! Read along for how Lisa handled just such a situation!

If this design looks familiar, you may have been following us for a while! It was first shown in our “here comes the New Year’s post” in 2018. When you aren’t in a rush to stitch, be sure to check out the post for timeless information on creating design layouts and changing colors in your lettering objects.

As you can see, Lisa removed a champagne glass from the original design, changed the text, and rotated the remaining glass. These minor edits were easy to execute, leaving her to save our stitch file and head off to the embroidery machine quite quickly! There was even time to spare to press her project and photograph it before handing it over to the hostess. 😀

The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that will not only allow you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
