Tea Towel Family

by CHERI on November 30, 2012

Follow Me on Pinterest I made some fun Christmas present tea towels for my Mom’s kitchen and for my Mother-in-Law’s kitchen.

For my mother I had both my kids and my sister’s girls.

I wanted stick figures that represented each of the kids.

For my Mother-in-law’s I only had my kids.

These were so fun to make.

 

Supplies:

 1 high quality natural fabric towel

1 marker

The design that you want on the towel

Tutorial:

Wash and dry the towel.

Trace the drawing onto the towel.

Wah–la!!!  You’re done!  You now have a fabulous gift.

If you don’t want to make them yourself–

I am working on more stick figures and stick animals.

If you are interested in ordering a tea towel I would be happy to do custom orders.

Four a family of 4

$20 + shipping

*****
Before doing the art work- I wash the all natural fabric towels before I do the art work on them.

You can wash these towels and the design will not disappear or ‘bleed’.

The towels do take on a slightly lovely faded appearance as the towel fibers move slightly as they are washed.

We recommend using Woolite detergent, since many of the detergents containing powerful stain fighters that could cause the print to fade.

While they can be washed in hot water and dried we recommend using a cold water wash and letting them air dry.

 

I first saw these towels over at Heather’s blog.
