Love Those Homespun Kitchen Towels!

246-001-1I was so excited to see our new Homespun Kitchen Towels in the studio this week! I just love these soft, classic woven towels. Not only do they look great in your kitchen but they can be the basis for some fun and easy handmade craft ideas as well.

So as we are celebrating “Christmas in July” this month, I thought I’d pull out some of my favorite holiday towel craft project pics and share them with you.

One super quick and easy holiday craft is to applique some Christmas shapes onto the towels using the frayed edge technique. Just leave the raw edges of the appliques exposed and make a few little clips into the loose seam allowance.  Add buttons, bows or fabric patches to embellish.  Then machine wash/dry your appliqued towel and the holiday design will come out all frayed and shabby style.

I’ve made these in the past to give as teacher gifts, hostess gifts and I’ve also sold many of them at craft shows. Do these towel projects inspire any good ideas for you? What craft would you do with a homespun kitchen towel?  I’m sure I’ll be doing up some new ones too now that we have a fresh stash of homespun towels on hand.
