Today is Day 2 of Canada Day craft week. Are all you Canadians out there joining in with your own 'Canada Day' crafting?
In case you missed it, yesterday's craft was the Canada Day bunting.
Today, I'm sharing another easy and simple project. A Canada Day tea towel.
Here's what you do: You'll need a white tea towel. I found some at the dollar store, but I just used an existing white towel. Heat n Bond Red fabric
First off, print and cut out your template. You may need to resize your image to your preferred size.
Cut out a square piece of fabric and your heat n bond. Be sure it's big enough to fit the maple leaf image.
Press your heat n bond onto the back of your fabric as directed.
Let it cool for a few seconds, then pin your template onto it.
Cut out the maple leaf image with your scissors.
Then peel the backing off your leaf.
Place your leaf onto your tea towel and press with an iron, again, as directed.
You can choose to leave your towel as is, but I prefer to sew it on as well. Especially since it's a tea towel and it will go through many washings.
Set your sewing machine to button-hole and sew around the perimeter of your maple leaf.
All set. You can now adorn your kitchen with some Canadian pride!
I love the simplicity of it! And these would be cute for a gift, too.
