Ashley Johnston of Make It and Love It shares how she ties colors together in her kitchen with a stripe of fabric sewn onto plain tea towels. This is an easy sewing project for gift-giving, such as for Mother's Day. Use holiday fabric for holiday tea towels. Use this tutorial to create a cute fabric yo-yo embellishment.
 

Embellished Tea Towel
 

Materials

  • Plain Cotton Tea Towel
  • Colorful Fabric Scrap
  • Coordinating Color for Fabric Yo-Yo
  • Needle and thread
  • Iron
  • Sewing machine


Instructions:

My towel measured 18 x 28 inches. I decided that I wanted my strip to be 2 inches tall and to be as wide as the towel, 18 inches. I added 1/4 inch to all sides.......and cut out a strip of fabric that was 2.5 x 18.5 inches. Then, I tucked under each side a 1/4 inch and ironed it flat. Then, I pinned the strip about 2.5 inches from the bottom (just eye it and place it wherever you'd like) and sewed around the strip, very close to the folded edge.

Okay, and then I just had to add a yo-yo. Hey, it might get in the way while drying those dishes......but who cares? It's so darn cute on there.
