I started the tour by embroidering an initial design for myself to set the tone for the towel. I decided on this octopus design from the Badbird blog.
The towel first traveled to SarahJ2001, who stitched up a cute little seahorse:
Sarah forwarded the towel along to IamSusie, who added this great little Nemo fish:
Susie then sent the towel across the pond to Kitten Wrangler, who created a coral made entirely of french knots. The texture on this one is amazing:
The towel then traveled back to the U.S. and landed in the Bay Area with ritapizza, whose contribution is this beautiful mermaid inspired by Heather Ross' Mendocino line of fabrics:
For its final stop, the towel made its way to PearliePie, who added another piece of undersea plant life:
I had such a great time participating in my first Tea Towel Tour. It has really helped me develop my embroidery skills and add a new dimension to my sewing and crafting. I hope to be able to rejoin the tour for round 6!
