Frosty Morning Kitchen Towels

There was a lovely snowfall here this week.  The roads are clear now, but the trees and grass are still covered in white glitter.  Our forecast has more snow predicted for tonight!  Did I mention how much I love snow?  'Probably because we don't get it very often here.  It feels like such a joyous treat when everything is shimmering with tiny ice crystals!

Today, my post joins these talented bloggers for a Pinterest Challenge!  The idea is to stop pinning long enough to actually create one of our pins!

This month we are working with a "Winter" theme.  I was inspired by THIS PIN which has been on my Sewing Board for about three years.  Thank goodness for these Pinterest Challenges!  I love Stephanie's fabric choices.  The colors and small bits of twinkle make me think of cold, snowy or frosty mornings after the sun rises.  Sadly, this has been a crazy year and parties have been strange and limited so I won't be making Stephanie's Cutlery Pockets.  That doesn't slow my creativity, though.

My project begins with white and navy kitchen towels found in the front bargain section at Target.  They're fine.  Really.  Perfectly fine just the way they are.  But that would make for an awfully short blog post, wouldn't it?  ;-)

A simple pine tree file was cut on navy and silver glitter heat transfer vinyl in three sizes then carefully weeded.

After a few minutes with a hot iron, my simple kitchen towel now makes me think of a cold morning after the sun rises.  Bonus:  The navy transfer vinyl was not glittery, however, in the ironing process, my center tree picked up just a little of the shimmery stuff, so it sparkles, too!

Then I stumbled across THIS PIN and just couldn't resist one more darling kitchen towel!  It was cut on the navy heat transfer and then carefully weeded.  I was worried I wouldn't have the patience for all those details, but I just took it slow, one letter at time!

These pretties are already hanging on the front of our stove as the snow begins to fall outside.  I like that we can enjoy them for Christmas, but also for the rest of the frosty mornings to come this Winter.

 Happy New Year, Everyone!

  1. Been wanting to upgrade kitchen towels with vinyl transfer for a long time. Keep putting it off. Your towels came out great and makes me want to run out and get some new towels to make some of these:-)

  2. Those turned out so cute! I often buy hand towels in Target's dollar spot myself but never thought of adding embellishments. Pinned.

  3. What a fabulous way to upgrade and design plain kitchen towels! This is a really great idea! I've so often looked for prettier kitchen towels - now I can make my own! Thanks!

  4. I've recently "discovered" Cricut crafts myself. I how easy it is to transform something everyday, like kitchen towel, into something fancy. Your projects turned out great, and I'm sure you'll enjoy using them.

  5. These towels look great! I love the glittery trees! Glitter makes everything better!
