Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Hello friends, today I’m sharing some DIY Monogrammed Kitchen Towels I made over at the Darice Blog last month. I’ve been a little lacking with posting new projects on the blog, since the Covid-19 started. My kids school started homeschooling right away, so that has kept me super busy with all three kids being home. We’ve been staying home, and trying to keep busy and positive. I’ve only went out a few times in the last month just to get groceries for the house. It’s wild seeing everyone in masks and having to start wearing one myself when I go out. I’m looking forward to the future and this being a distant memory for us.
Ok now onto the craft, Darice came out with these hand towels and I’ve been itching to do a project with them! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a holiday or non seasonal project with these. But you could do either! I was also excited to use my new Silhouette Cameo 4 again. I’ve done a couple heat transfer projects over the last couple months. I’ve become kinda obsessed.
These are a great project to make for your home. I also think these would make great gifts for a wedding, hostess or house warming gift.
DIY Monogrammed Kitchen Towel Supplies Needed:
- Cotton Towels
- Heat Transfer Vinyl – Black
- Heat Transfer Vinyl – Coral
- Heat Transfer Vinyl – Rose Gold
- Mini Crafting Iron
- Silhouette Cameo 4
Step 1 – Iron Towels
To start off let’s pull out our kitchen towels and give them and good ironing. Once they were ironed I folded them over nicely to start the project.
Step 2 – Find Your Design
Since I decided on making monogrammed towels, I went into the Silhouette library and found the perfect monogram for this project.
This is the design ID and designer of this design.
Step 3 – Cut and Weed Design
I cut my monogram out on heat transfer vinyl and weeded it.
Quick Tip: When doing a heat transfer project, you need to make sure you mirror the image before you cut.
Then laid it on top on my kitchen towels.
Step 4 – Iron on Design
Place a towel on top of the vinyl and with a little pressure, place your iron on the towel. Do not move the iron around like you are ironing a piece of clothing. Keep the iron in place and continue to add pressure for about 30 seconds. Then peel the plastic part off.
Now you’re ready to display and use!
I seriously think these turned out AMAZING. What a great personalized project to make for the home. I made three different styles.
As always thanks for stopping by, if you have any questions about the iron on precess I’d be more then happy to answer them. Please stay safe out there, I know it’s trying times for everyone and all the uncertainty. Crafting is something that helps me get through this. Even writing this post at 10:00 pm after the kids have gone to bed is a good distraction for me from the day.
