Tea towels for the country kitchen.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Fabric
  • Thread
  • vinyl for stencil
  • Fabric Dye
  • Sponge Applicator
  • Sewing Machine

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

First i decided about how long and how wide i wanted my tea towels to be and cut the fabric to size.
Then I hemmed the sides for a clean look. I used different color thread on each tea towel to give each their own character but of course you don't have to do that.
Next I chose which animals i wanted to use from the folk art festival cartridge. I chose the owl, the rabbit, and the squirrel. I decided about how large i wanted them and then cut them onto vinyl.
I used the vinyl cut outs as a stencil so here i applied them to the fabric and pressed them on as firmly as possible. I decided for the rabbit i would not use any of the embellishments and for the owl and the squirrel i used some.
I then applied the fabric dye with a craft sponge. Dabbing until the stencil was filled. After letting it dry for a few minutes i remove the vinyl stencil and followed the directions of the fabric dye letting them dry completely for 72 hours before washing. And there you have it.
