I still can’t believe that fall is already here, where has the year gone?! One thing that goes hand in hand with fall is Pumpkin Spice flavored everything. I figured since many of the foods in your kitchen are now Pumpkin Spiced, why not have a towel to show off your devotion to this yearly tradition.
I started with a pack of White Flour Sack Towels. 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.
I created this design in Silhouette Studio, if you want to make it yourself, the file is offered below. Heat Transfer Vinyl is one material that I test cut EVERY SINGLE TIME. Normal vinyl I have an idea of how to cut it, but Heat Transfer and I don’t always get a long. I also recommend double cutting, it makes weeding so much easier.
Each Heat Transfer Vinyl brand has its own instructions for application, so make sure you follow those directions for temperature, time, and whether or to peel hot or cold. I used an iron to make this (because my heat press has been sitting in my garage unopened for almost a year, I’m kinda scared of it).
The one downside to using flour sack towels is that they have natural creases which can make it a little bit more difficult to apply the vinyl. I ironed the towel a little bit to smooth out a few of the wrinkles before applying the design. I really like using an ironing mat because I can iron on my desk and don’t have to store a separate ironing board.
