It's a Dirty Job embroidery pattern

What you get+-

So. . . let me tell you how I really feel about doing the dishes. :-)

Let's just say I'd rather stitch about doing the dishes than actually do the dishes. This is sized to fit on a tea towel, but it would also look great in other uses. Perhaps you'd like to frame it to hang over your sink? Or maybe stitch it on an apron. It's a not-so-subtle way to tell everyone else what chore you'd really like them to volunteer for. :-) No matter how you use it - have fun!

You Get. . .

  • digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
  • a full-sized pattern (prints on four sheets of paper) plus an extra version sized so the whole thing fits on a single sheet of paper. That'll make it easy to enlarge or reduce it to any size you want.
  • a reversed image for use with iron-on transfer tools
  • links to videos teaching both of the stitches I used on the sample


This is a big pattern - the image is just under 16" x 22" and fits beautifully on one of these towels. It'll take several nights to stitch but the stitching is really easy.


That's right - I said easy. It's all one color and you can use your favorite outline stitch. I used backstitch on the block letters and stem stitch on those last few words in script.

Inject a little humor into a dreaded chore. Unless, of course, you love doing the dishes. :-)
