What? How is it already Thanksgiving week? I’m totally not ready, mainly because October-December is my favorite time of year and I feel like it’s halfway gone. Anyway, I made these dishtowels to hang in the store but I ended up loving them- so I kept them :)
I went to Joann’s looking for “dishtowel” material (what ever that means) and found something perfect. Isn’t this waffle fabric such dishtowel material? I serged the edges, pressed them down and sewed a hem all the way around.
Then, I cut the fabric to fit over the dishtowel the same way I make my burp cloths. If you have a serger you can serge to the exact size, if not you will need just fold the edge over. Then I used a zig-zag stitch to attach the fabric to the edges of the dish towels.
Fold your towels the way they will hang to determine where you will stamp your words. Then tape off the section for the words.
Of course, I used my PSA Essentials. The great thing about these stamps is the “stamper” that comes with them. It gives you a perfect stamp each time but I wanted a more “rustic” looking letter so I used the stamp on an acrylic block. Also that helped me to line up the letters easier.
Center your words and stamp away.
I love how they turned out. Also, last week my son moved them and I walked by and they said “giving… thanks” Still works. For other PSA Stamps ideas, visit the blog HERE.
