More Fabric--Towels

As promised I'm back with another project featuring some of the Stampin' Up fabric.   A few months back one of my club hostesses requested a fabric project.  I didn't necessarily want to make a project that involved sewing, (not my area of expertise!) so I decided to have everyone make a towel.  It was fun because each person got to choose their own fabric and Big Shot die that they used to make a customized towel.  Some of the dies that are fun for this project are flowers, circles, or alphabets (for monograms). 

For this towel I used the Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric and the Tasteful Trim Big Shot Die.  I cut a strip of fabric as long as the towel and then ironed on some of the Fabric Adhesive (found in the Occasions Mini Catalog on page 39).  At that point I put the fabric on the die folding it a couple times so that it would come out as a continuous piece of fabric.  After running it through the Big Shot, I ironed the fabric onto the towel.  Very easy!  Of course you can also add some machine stitching or use some of the coordinating Big Designer Buttons to further embellishment if desired.  A fun gift idea! 

Accessories:  Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric, Towel, Fabric Adhesive Roll, Tasteful Trim Die, Big Shot

Great project...the options are just endless with the fabric and the Tasteful Trim die. TFS!

Wonderful project...looks great! I tried something similar at Christmas time, but although I looked everywhere, I couldn't find plain white towels. Where did you find yours?

Hi Barbara--thanks for your comment! I actually found the towels at Walmart. Kept it budget friendly too. :-)
