Welcome to September and Pumpkin Spice season. Last year, I made a Pumpkin Spice For Life tea towel, so this year I’ve made a coordinating towel to go along with it. If you are ready to deck your home out in Pumpkin Spice Everything, make sure to check out this project and show off your Pumpkin Spice love to everybody who visits your home.
Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice Tea Towel
I had some White Flour Sack Towels left over from last year which was great for this project. I like the size of these towels, and they are great for simply hanging off the front of the oven. The design is made with Orange Heat Transfer Vinyl that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Last year, I talked about being scared of my Heat Press, well, I finally sucked it up and turned it on (although I *might* have made my husband come up to my craft room and hang out in there while I used it).
I do have a reason to be scared of it, I’m terrified of fire and since this device both heats up, and draws a lot of current, there are many different ways which it could catch on fire. Plus I read some people who had it “smoke off” on first use so I had a few reasons to be apprehensive. Now that I’ve used it once, he won’t have to come hang out in the room while I use it.
I did still utilize my iron a little bit for this project. Since the flour sack towels have so many natural creases, I wanted to smooth them out a bit before pressing the actual decal. I really like using an ironing mat because I can iron on my desk and don’t have to store a separate ironing board. Plus, since the only time that I use my iron is for craft projects, its fine that it lives in there.
I’ve now added this towel to my fall towel rotation (along with a couple more that you will see on the blog next week or so). It is definitely a fun addition to add a bit of fall to my kitchen decor.
