Bad to the Bone!

I've been doing a little machine embroidery lately. I needed something to give my stepdaughter, to thank her for making and canning a plethora of stock for me. She's an absolute wiz at it. Yummy! So when she said she needed some new towels, I set out finding just the right design to embroider. I think I found it!

 Violet (one of my stepdaughter's dogs) posing next to one of the towels. She looks so innocent, but she's "bad to the bone"! No, not really, she is VERY sweet, but she does love to chew on a bone.

The embroidery design is from Urban Threads: "Bad to the Bone"! I embroidered a wash cloth, hand towel and bath towel. The bath towel gave me some trouble, it took three tries to get it done. It was so heavy is kept pulling it out of register. I ended up having to hold it up the whole time it was stitching. But I think it was worth it!

I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday. 

Color Me Quilty!



  1. Oh my goodness sweet! What an awesome way to say "thank you"! and sew very creative!

    Just love the puppy too!

  2. Aww that's so adorable, and what a brilliant idea! I'd thought of embroidering tea towels but not bath ones!

  3. So cute, great choice of design!

  4. I'm not sure which is cuter - the towels or the dog. Nice work.

  5. They are both so cute! Your step daughter is going to love the towels!

  6. Aw, Violet is just adorable! Lovely embroidery design too, I bet she'll love it :o)

  7. Really cute post picture of such a cute towel and doggie. My dog really is sweet too - but she's can also be bad to the bone.
