As I finished up my downstairs bathroom makeover, I realized that I could not put my same old hand towels back out.
One of the dangers of decorating. . .
One thing leads to another.
I looked around a bit and could not find anything that I liked.
I wanted them to be simple, but to have some personality to them.
I decided to make some of my own.
I gathered all of my supplies.
Hand towel (washed and dried)
Light colored material (washed and dried) – I used drop cloth because I had it on hand. You don’t want to use a light weight material.
Fabric ink pad
Following the directions for your fusible web, adhere the web to the fabric.
Using a straight line, draw your rectangles onto the paper part of the web.
Mine were 2″ x 5″
Cut them out.
Still leave the paper on, it makes it easier to stamp them.
I used a stamping block.
(LOVE that my daughter has such a great stamping stash!)
I stamped the word onto the fabric.
Pretty straight forward words.
I wanted it to be simple.
Peel the back off of the web.
Iron it to the towel.
Run a zig-zag stitch around the edge.
I expect them to fray a bit around the edges when I wash them, but I like that look.
Life to the full,
