Towel (wash before embroidering)
Step 1: Hoop the tear away interfacing first.
Step 2: Mark lightly where you want the embroidery design. For this design, I placed the "A", 10" from the bottom of the towel and in the center. Place the towel over the hooped interfacing. Smooth everything out and make sure the marking for the center of the design is under the needle. Then place the water soluble topper over the towel. Use a rectangle basting stitch to hold all three layers together.Step 3: Start the embroidery design. The topper allows the embroidery thread to be on top of the terry fabric's loops.
Step 4: Finish the embroidery design. You can see that my design was larger than the baste stitch, this is ok because at the end of the project we pick the basting stitches out, so we are left with only the design.
Step 5: Tear away the back interfacing. The water soluble topper might also tear away but it is washable too. Enjoy your towel!
Best wishes and tons of stitches!
