2 Creative Chicks - Challenge #17 "Decorate a Dish/Tea/Jelly Roll Towel"

It's time for another challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks.






Recipe: 
Purchased Towel
Muslin
Wonder Under
Drawn Design
Transfer Paper
Acrylic Paints
Paint Brushes
Sewing Machine

 For my towel I purchased a plaid towel at Dollar Tree for $1.00 (I really love the the pretty plaid). I cut a piece of muslin a little wider than the towel, I drew out my design and transferred it to my muslin. I hand painted the design with acrylic paint and when dry I heat set it with the iron, (acrylic paint is permanent when dry). I then used Wonder Under  to attach the painted muslin piece to my towel and then I machine stitched all around the edges of the muslin.

I love how my towel turned out, I my just have to make some more for the Holidays.


Onto the challenge info. Hop on over and link up today.
Friday, August 1
Ends: Sunday, August 31

I could not find child size cotton garden gloves so...... I used my Silhouette machine and a file for a garden glove and made gloves/hands.


I hope I haven't forgotten anything. I really love my scarecrow and his chicken. There is supposed to be a crow on his hat but I thought he was cute like he is. I may still make the crow and add it. It so I will post an update.


I hope you like him as much as I do.


I am working on some more amazing dolls (found some great patterns) that I can't wait to share with you over the next few months when I am finished with them. They are for Halloween and 


Thanksgiving.
