Project

Personalized Tea Towel Craft

Give basic kitchen towels a one-of-a-kind look with monogram clip art.

Introduction

Resources: Iron-on transfer paper is available from Amazon.com and most office-supply and crafts stores.

Materials

  • Monogram template
  • Iron-on transfer paper
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Pillowcase
  • Plain or minimally decorated tea towel
  • Iron

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Download the template for your chosen letter, and print onto iron-on transfer paper. Note: Letters print in reverse, which is needed for most types of iron-on transfer papers. Check the manufacturer's instructions for the specific type of transfer paper you are using. Letter may be printed as a mirror image if it needs to be right-facing

  2. Step 2

    Using scissors or a craft knife, cut loosely around the designs, leaving a 1/8-inch border.

  3. Step 3

    Lay an ironed pillowcase on a table or other hard, heat-resistant surface (not an ironing board, which has too much padding).

  4. Step 4

    Place an ironed tea towel on pillowcase. Arrange cut out designs face down on tea towel, avoiding seams. Iron letter onto tea towel. Let cool completely, and remove paper backing.
