Super Simple Tea Towel....

I fell in love...
with some pretty fabric...

I've used it before HERE , I used it today, and chances are....I'll use it again.

Today I made this sweet little tea towel...

It was so very easy to make...do you want to know how I made it?
Okay...you twisted my arm...let's start with the supplies:
Flour sack towels (found at Wal-mart), my trusty Heat-n-Bond, Pretty fabric ( I found this print at JoAnn's), iron and scissors

First you will need to cut a square of fabric and heat-n-bond the same size and iron for 10 seconds at a low temp to apply the heat-n-bond to the fabric....(sorry no picture of this step)
Next, cut out your shapes....

Then remove the paper backing.....

Lay out your fabric shapes on the tea towel, and iron in place for 8-10 seconds at a low temp.....

And...it's just that simple my friends!


Think about all the fun possibilities for this project. I'm thinking coffee themed fabric...or tea cups...or pretty little flowers. If the fabric has a large enough print that you can cut the shapes out, then you can add them to a tea towel. And what a sweet little gift this would make.

Hope you enjoyed seeing some more of my obsession with this fabric...who knows, you may see it again soon....

What kind of fabric would you add to yours?

    These are so very cute and I don't sew either, but I can do heat bond! Can't wait to make my own. Thanks for the great idea!

  5. So cute! I have been using heat n bond like it's going out of style lately...another thing I can adhere! Plus, I bought 2 yards of this same fabric a while back, thinking I will find something to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
