Welcome to Day 19! You can find the other 31 Days posts here.
Last year I gave embellished flour sack towels (I bought them at Target - a pack of 4 for under $5 I think) as part of gifts (the other part was Bath & Body Works soap). I enjoyed making them and they turned out cute! Here are the ones I made (sorry pictures aren't the best, I was rushing).
This was done using a stamp and fabric ink. But you can also use a stencil (freezer, vinyl, etc), fabric (with heat n bond) or heat transfer material.
This was my favorite one! And so easy too! (I "learned" to sew right before Christmas last year! I say "learned" because I am still learning!) All I did was sew thick ribbon at the bottom of the towel. Quick and easy. (This ribbon was similar to grosgrain. I tried a satin ribbon but it went horribly wrong!)
Over at Twirl they used the same flour sack towels and made them with a group. What a fun craft night idea! They used varying sizes of fabric scraps, decorative stitches (in fun colors) and tassels. I love the bright colors, especially the blue Christmas fabric!
Embellished kitchen towels make a great Christmas, housewarming, wedding or even birthday gift. They go great with kitchen utensils, spices, soap or even a homemade sugar scrub from yesterday!
Tomorrow is Day 20! Wow! That means November is around the corner...are you ready for the holidays?
