KIMBERBELL EXCLUSIVE EBROIDERY FUN-Tandem Bicycle Tote & Sweetest Equation Tea Towel

Tandem Bicycle Tote:

In our tandem design, little bluebirds look sweet perched on a bicycle seat and handle bars. We then adorn the basket of blossoms with fringe flowers too. This design is perfect of a picnic tote or a cute pillow on your couch.

The Sweetest Equation Tea Towels:

If the occasion calls for pie making, we keep the recipe simple with this math equation. Choose to appliqué either apple or pumpkin for the sweetest gift or kitchen decor. We  will include for adding a checked fabric border to a tea towel. While the design would look equally as cute on an apron for your favorite baker.
