DIY Stamped Hand Towels

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in bathroom, crafts | 46 comments

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.

Super simple.

Super quick.

Stamped Towels

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.

Fusible web

Fabric ink pad



Sewing Machine

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.

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,
