Cross stitching on bathroom towels


Give your bathroom a new look!
It's time to get rid of those tired and sad towels and give your bathroom a fresh set of towels. The splendid "parakeet" design shown here is specifically designed for the DMC bathroom towel range:

There are several ranges of terry towels specifically designed for stitching. They all include a woven Aida area  where you can cross stitch. Use our handy size guide below to check if your pattern will fit the Aida area.

If you can't find the right towel you can also stitch your motif on a piece of Aida and machine stitch it on a regular towel.

The splendid "parakeet" design shown here is specifically designed for the DMC bathroom towel range with a pattern designed for each size:  Bath towelHand towelGuest towel and - Wash glove




Tips for stitching on washable items:

1. Use colorfast floss
DMC cotton floss colors are colorfast which means you can machine wash them even at a high temperature, which makes them ideal for bathroom towels. Do not use metallics that cannot be washed at a high temperature and if you use other threads, check their specifications to make sure they will not run and will hold their color.

2. Finishing your thread.
Make sure each length of thread is solidly secured at the back of your stitching and will not come undone during repeated washes.
