I really like having seasonal towels in my kitchen.  My kitchen doesn’t have much wall space and I don’t put decorations on the counters, so I love the color and cuteness that a seasonal towel adds to the room.

This week, I decided to make one using heat transfer vinyl.  I love heat transfer vinyl projects!  They are so quick and easy to make and they look so professional when finished.  And, there’s no paint brush to clean out when you’re done.

    • Iron or Heat Press


Start by ironing your towel.  I used a tea towel and folded it in thirds so I had a nice area to center my design.  Then, in your software program, open your design and size it so it fits nicely within the folds.  Before you send the design to your cutter, be sure to reverse it.  Cut out the vinyl and weed away the excess.

Once everything is weeded, take all the different colors and layer them so you can see exactly what it will look like when you’re finished.  Lay the whole design on your fabric and center and straighten accordingly.
Then, remove all the colors except for the first layer. Iron that into place according to the manufacturer’s directions.  Then, remove plastic backing.
Then, add the next layer.  Iron and remove the backing.
Add the final layer and repeat the steps above.
This is such an easy way to dress up a plain kitchen towel.  I love to buy these towels in bulk.  Then, I always have them on hand and can whip out a cute towel in no time.  These also make great gifts!
