As I mentioned on in my last post, sometimes, in order to hit the reset button I deep clean a room of my house. It not only makes me feels like I’ve accomplished something, but it’s one less mess I have to worry about. This last week, I’ve been focusing on the kitchen. When I was cleaning, I noticed I was missing some crucial items, for example, hand towels. I have a drawer with one ripped up Halloween towel and some pretty in tact Christmas ones. Then I went about trying to buy new ones, ended up with a packet of wash cloths. Not to mention I was being incredibly picky and saw nothing that I liked enough to buy. So I went about making my own.
I liked this project a lot because it was easy, quick and I didn’t have to make a mess. The end result turned out awesome, considering how quickly it was made. I’ve seen some tutorials online where they make insanely beautiful designs with sharpies, but I am not that talented. So I stuck with simple.
I started with a three pack of Aunt Martha’s Flour Sack Tea Towels. Then printed out what I wanted it to say in a bold black font (I used Franchise). You can also use the one I created here. Slide the piece of paper underneath your towel, center it and use a water soluble fabric marker to outline your letters.
It should look like this when finished.
Then take your Sharpie and fill in your outlines.
Almost seems too simple.
