16 days until Christmas, oh my goodness, I have lots to do and not a ton of time to do it in. It's time to start whipping up some, can get it done in an evening projects. Well, I thought I would show you a quick and easy adaptation to one of my mug rug patterns. I love my new 'Dasher' pattern. (It's currently available as a PDF instant download on ETSY and Craftsy.) I thought it would make a cute tea towel too. So here's how I put the applique design onto a brightly colored tea towel.....
|I traced the pieces out as you would normally for the mug rug|
and then ironed them onto the tea towel, leaving a large space from the bottom, but
placing the deer to the edge of the towel...
|I did a blanket stitch all around Dasher, leaving the bottom|
|I then sewed a blanket stitch on each side of the binding strip.|
|Here is the finished towel. It was fun using the bright green buttons.|
See how the edge of the deer lines up with the edge of the towel?
Any of my Quilt Doodle mug rug patterns could be adapted and used on a tea towel, these designs would also be cute sewn onto a purchased placemat too.
