Today, I am so excited to have my friend Heather from Setting For Four here guest posting! She is truly talented, and I am so happy to have her as my first guest poster!
You are going to love, love, love these Tea Towels…
At my blog Setting For Four, I share home decor DIY’s, tutorials and design inspiration from the viewpoint of a stay at home mom of 2 boys, both teenagers 13 and 17. Please stop by my blog sometime and say hello – I love to make new bloggy friends!
Today I am sharing with you a quick and inexpensive way to turn your children’s artwork into an adorable tea towel that will make your kiddos feel really special and will add some whimsy and personality to your kitchen!
Can you imagine your child’s surprise and delight when they see this? They will love that you gave their artwork a permanent place in the kitchen for everyone to see everyday! My son was very flattered and thought it was very ‘cool’!
Below is the picture I used for this project; our youngest boy drew this picture of our family when he was 9 years old. This picture just makes me smile everytime I look at it and now I can have it in my kitchen too!
Look at all the love arrows we have going on here, and the cheery sun with sunglasses! (apparantly I have a verrry long torso and tiny short legs!! Even that makes me smile!)
Flour Sack kitchen towel, pack of 2 – Mainstays brand, Wallmart
Ultra Fine Point black permanent Sharpie marker
Black and white photocopy of your children’s art
2 straight pins
Wash and dry the flour sack towel.
Place photocopy on table, with the printed side facing up (make sure something is under the photocopy to protect your table).
Place towel on top of photocopy.
Pin the towel to the paper in two places to prevent shifting.
Trace the drawing onto the towel using the Sharpie (The towel is see through enough that you can see the drawing underneath). After the first tracing, I went over the lines once more with the Sharpie to make the lines darker.
That.Is.It!!! You’re done!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Please visit my blog and say hello sometime!

Due to having some of my content and posts stolen by no good lazy people who don’t do their own projects, I am sorry to have to truncate (shorten) my feeds. Please don’t hold it against me, and continue reading, because I do love you and want to share my tutorials with you ;)
