Today's tutorial is from Amanda of Be Sweet... she is also participating in our giveaway in March...so stay tuned to see what she will be giving away!
I have been in desperate need of some new kitchen towels for oh... say 2 years. So the other night at Target I found these soft ( think Sham-Wow) towels 10 for $10. I loved the bright colors but wanted to spruce them up a little as they usually hang right on my stove for all to see... and well... looks matter. :)
Want to make some? Thought so...
Grab some towels and fabric you want to look at Monday thru Friday. I picked a vintage pillow case out of my stash since it matched the towels perfectly.
Next, grab a erasable marker and write out M, T, W,T, F ( I did my free hand but you can use a stencil too)
Cut them out - OK VERY IMPORTANT - Once they are all cut out get them wet, throw them in the dryer for a bit to erase your marker lines. ( If you don't and iron over them it will set your marker and you will be sad.)
I used Stitch Witchery to secure them to the towels before stitching around the edge. You dont HAVE to ... but I think it makes it easier.
Finally, I did a quick zig-zag stitch around the outside and you've got yourself some good-lookin' kitchen towels. :)
Dont ask me what you are supposed to do about Saturday and Sunday- you're on your own kids.
Thanks Amanda for a fun tutorial!
