I love nothing more than stepping into my bathroom and being greeted with a fresh set of personalized bath linens. All you need is your embroidery machine to transform an ordinary bath set into extraordinary bathroom accessories. With such a fast, easy embellishment, you can whip up a set for every family member or house guest. And for that final touch, try embroidering a subtle border on the shower curtain for style that spans the room.

What You'll Need:
Purchased towels and shower curtain
Embroidery design of your choice/monogram software of your choice
Printed templates for placement
Coordinating embroidery thread
Soft tear-away stabilizer and wash-away stabilizer for machine embroidery
Temporary adhesive spray
Embroidery machine
Scissors

Embroider Your Towels

Step 1: Choose your thread
If you are using a bright color embroidery thread on a light-colored towel, choose polyester embroidery thread. It is the most colorfast and least likely to bleed.

I don't have an embriodery machine so I have to Improvise with trims amd decorative stitching. I make sure that the trims I use are practical and able to withstand washing & drying. You can also use bands of color to give them some extra pizazz.
