Fall Kitchen Towels
Welcome! Can you believe that it’s already September 1? I would complain, but for the first time that I can remember I’m ready for fall. With the first of every month comes the DIY Challenge and I’m loving this months theme – Fall inspiration! Nothing makes me feel like it’s fall until I get my kitchen decorated. One of the things that I love best is pulling out fall themed kitchen towels. Which is why I’m sharing how to make fall kitchen towels with you today!
A great big shout out to Terrie from Decorate and More With Tip. She’s our fearless leader and I can’t tell you how much work she puts into hosting each month. Thank You Terrie!
Also, if you are visiting here from Blessings by me, I’m so glad that you are here!
Now, let’s get started!
I love cute flour sack towels.
Especially the ones that have fun quotes.
One teeny tiny issue though, sometimes they can get pricey.
So, I decided that I could make a few of my own.
In some ways this craft is so simple that I’m almost embarrassed to share it with you.
Simple, yet time consuming!
- Cutting Matt
- Iron or Heat Press Machine
- Flour Sack towels. I found mine here.
Before I go much further, I realize that not everyone has a cutting machine, however I plan to offer you what I think is a cute alternative at the end of this post!
I used my cutting machine’s software to upload a design for my kitchen towels.
Once my design was finished, I loaded my cutting machine with vinyl and let it do it’s magic!
This particular design has several colors.
Each color was cut out separately.
Iron on your design.
In my case I had 4 different colors, so each color would have to be ironed on separately.
Honestly, I know that there is a way to put all of the layers together before ironing them on, I just haven’t had the time to watch a tutorial to figure it out!
I ironed mine on with my new heat press machine, however an iron works just fine.
Here’s how my Fall kitchen towel turned out.
I love it!!!
So much so that I think that I will be making some Fall and Christmas ones for gifts!
Now what if you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine?
I have two ideas for you.
Did you know that you can buy precut vinyl decals?
Well, you can!
You order, then simply iron on.
And what about stencils?
How simple would this be?
All you would need would be kitchen towels, paint and a brush!
I love making kitchen towels, but I also like that I can choose my design, color and theme to perfectly match my kitchen.
Making Fall kitchen towels have never been so much fun!
Now it’s time to head on over to visit Liberty at B4 and Afters, I can’t wait to see what she has made!
Also, be sure to visit all of the other DIY Challenge participants and their wonderful Fall projects!
As always, if you loved it, be sure to Pin it!!
This is so pretty!! I love the colors!
Thank you Michelle! Those colors make me happy…
These are pretty and I don’t have a circuit machine. Using iron on graphics is one thing I have been wanting to try.
I love this time of year, I’m a colder weather girl.
Thanks Cindy! I found a ton of reasonably priced iron on on-line. Plus, they have come a long way. They used to be that plastic looking stuff. Now they are so soft. Let me know if you try and how you like it!
You always inspire me with your clear creativity, Tammy! Keep up the good work!
Thank you Melody, you have made my day!
I want to make some towels, too! I even have a couple! I love your color choices…. so cheerful for Fall!
Liberty they were really fun to make. Let me know how you like making them. Love to see what you do… always up for great inspo!
I am going to have to talk with you on the iron-ons. I have an apron I want to try something on. I just don’t know how to do it.
Love the towels and the design. I never thought about buying towels and making my own seasonal towels. Great idea.
Terrie you will have so much fun with the iron-ons! I never thought about making an apron, but what a great idea!
I love this pretty tea towel. It’s perfect for fall.
Thanks Danya! I have had more fun with these towels. Can’t wait to make some for the holidays.
You just made it look super simple. What a neat idea and it looks so beatuiful. I am so ready to buy cricut machine. You are so crafty! . I also love your color combination!
Thanks Bushra! You will love having a Cricut. So many things that you can do with it!
Wow Tammy !! This is something new for me. I’m always learning something new on the internet !
