Welcome to the Farm Girl Dishtowel Lettering tutorial.
This post will give you hints for stitching American Type
You may have the Farm Girl Dishtowel kit or pattern. If not, this pattern and/or kit is available to purchase from the "Embroidered Toweling" Category on this site.
Pre-wash your towel following manufacturers instructions.
I used the cool setting on my washer.
Trace design onto your washed and pressed dishtowel. Find detailed tracing instructions on FAQ's page of this website.
I used 2 strands of black floss and backstitch for the letters.
I have started my letters in this photo. You can see my tracing for a single row column and a double row column. The F is finished with a double row main column. The base's of all vertical and horizontal columns are finished.
Note how each column does not necessarily have a base going in
each direction. For example, the top of the F only has a base going towards the left. The top horizontal column of the F only has the base pointing downward.
