Seems I'm a bit behind (again!) so here I am; I just sat down after sewing a new doll for Roo:
I have some "spare time" (AHAHAHAHAAAAAA who am I kidding?) so I'm giving you the last installment of The Dish Towel Series. This time it's for a really easy mixing bowl appliquéd towel with no printable template required. You get to make your own!
Start off with a clean, dry, freshly pressed towel. Here we go:
You will need three pieces of computer paper, a grid ruler, pencil, Pellon Wonder Under (a paper backed fusible web), thread and the usual iron/ironing board/sewing machine.
To make the appliqué, fold the 11" side of paper in half so they're 8 1/2"x5 1/2".
Cut the bowl patterns out.
To attach Wonder-Under:
1-place the wrong side of the fabric against the rough side of Wonder-Under. Using a hot dry iron, press the fabric for 5-8 seconds. Allow to cool, then trace one of the bowls onto the paper, then cut. Peel off the paper backing and stick appliqué into place:
Starting about 2 1/2" up from bottom of towel, arrange the bowls to your liking:
Press into place.
I like to go over the stitching line a few times for durability and to make the rough-edge appliqué look more purposeful.
