Helping Hands

From Crabapple Hill Studio
By Hawkey, Meg
In Hand Embroidery & Stitchery
Everybody could use a little bit of cheerful help in the kitchen during the holidays! These three snowmen are ready to help you bake, and wash dishes, and just “hang” out in the kitchen with you… no social distancing required! This is a quick, super easy pattern with colored pencil tinting that is completely washable! Designed to fit a finished 20” wide dish towel, you could easily adapt it to fit anything over 14” wide.
