I found some left over Valentine’s Day fabric from my Cookie’s in a Jar present last year.
I thought I would give a whirl at applique. I did it several years ago but never tried it again.
I googled a good description and found these great and easy to follow directions HERE from Seamingly Smitten
I bought a single flour sack towel at Ben Franklin, not the cheapest place but did not want to buy a bunch unless I knew it would be a success. Plus the ones at Target were really thin and this one was more of a durable one. UPDATED 1/13/14
I purchased these towels at Target as well for $3. I added the applique which makes a cute inexpensive teachers gift.
Following the directions the same except I did not have the double sided Heat Bond so I used fabric tape to hold everything in place.
I could have stopped here, pretty proud of the outcome,
This is really an easy process especially if you are only using one easy design and fabric choice. Visited my sister this weekend so she I gave it to her, I think I need to make one for myself.
