As part of our kitchen re-fresh, I have made up some new tea towels. I found the perfect aqua fabric, and teamed it with some white waffle cotton (very absorbent) and ric rac.
Making your own tea towels is such a quick project. I love having pops of aqua in my kitchen.
The aqua is a nice contrast to the white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and black granite.
Tea towels are a great project for a beginner sewer or for a child learning to sew, as it is basically just hemming a rectangle of fabric. Or you can buy ready made plain towels and dress them up by sewing on a band of fabric.
If you would like to make your own you will need:
- waffle cotton 20 x 28 inches
- strip of quilting cotton measuring 20 x 5 inches
- 40 inches ricrac trim
