This morning I was back on KCTV5’s Better Kansas City with another project – DIY tea towels.Click here to watch the video (please ignore my camera mishap at the very beginning, ha).
Below is the complete tutorial
Looking for a thoughtful, homemade gift idea?
These state + city themed tea towels are so easy and fun to make.
Gather your materials.
+ Any extra fabric you have laying around
+ 1-2 White tea towels (I got mine from Amazon)
+ Sharpie marker
+ Your state printed template (scroll to the bottom of this post for your free KS and MO printables)
+ Fabric Glue, iron on adhesive or a sewing machine
You will also need an iron (if you choose the iron on route) and a printer.
Cut out the printed state templates and trace around them with your sharpie onto the fabric. Next, cut out the state shapes.
If using the iron on method, cut the material to fit the shape of the state (make sure you cover the fabric as much as possible). Remember to apply the iron on adhesive to the backside (flipped) side of the state shape.
To get your fabric hearts, cut 2 “freehanded” hearts from some fabric in another color.
Flip your state over gently (making sure your iron on material stays underneath the fabric). Iron the state to the tea towel. Make sure you follow the directions on the iron on material packaging.
Finally, you will want to iron your heart(s) to your state.
Voilà….you have your very own KC ♥ tea towel(s). Enjoy!
