Tea Towel Kits and Free Pattern


Hi there! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!! I got some sewing time in this weekend and can't wait to show you what I have been working on.  :)

I have been waiting to show you guys these darling tea towels I've made for a while now!  I used the Moda Toweling, which I absolutely love and really can't get enough of! These little lovelies are a fast and easy project, that would make a perfect gift!

I came up with the pattern, and Jodie made these fabulous kits! The pattern is completely free!

You can find the free PDF pattern HERE



I had a blast making these towels, and the best part is that they are easy and quick! I literally whipped one of these up in a half an hour!  You really can't beat that! :)
Since Christmas is right around the corner, we have these cute Christmas towel kits available for purchase at the shop! 
Click here to Purchase this Christmas Tea Towel Kit!

This Christmas Tea Towel Kit, is very traditional and the fabrics are gorgeous! There is some metallic gold in there, which really sets these towels apart and make them really elegant! 
Click HERE to purchase this Tea Towel Kit


These towels feature Wilmington's popular Christmas 1930's fabric! These just say vintage, and would be a perfect gift for someone who loves 1930's prints!

We also have some everyday towel kits!  This first one is made using Moda's new line Fancy by Lily Ashbury.  These towels almost remind of fiestaware! They are so bright and cheery!

These lovely coral and brown towels are my absolute favorite! These were made using Fig Tree's Somerset line and they are so fabulous! These would be perfect at your Thanksgiving table!

I would make them to give away and hopefully that person would use them. But they are very cute!

amy mayen said...

For show only. I'd display them in my kitchen, but attack anyone who tried to actually use them. And I didn't know Moda had toweling!!

I'd probably use them. I love cute towels. Of course, they would be for me to use and NOT for the kids!

VickiLorraine@lefthandednotions said...

I would just love to have the joy of making them :). They would be on show for awhile before I could possibly use them.

Jusmom1 said...

I think I would use them to decorate my kitchen! So it would be "for show" only. Like another poster, I may consider a second set to use, because I'm worth "pretty things" to make chores more bearable! Thanks for the chance to win!

Rita McCart said...

I would probably give them as a gift to someone, they are very sweet. Thank you for the chance to win. :D

I don't have a place for "show" towels so they would definitely be getting used, we just hang ours on the kitchen refrigerator door :)

For show, of course! These colors would go great in my kitchen.

I would put them out, and my husband and I wouldn't use them, but our 25 year old sons would. Didn't their mother teach them better?

Tea towels are my go to gift to make! I use linen so this toweling would be awesome to try. I would have it for show for a bit and then use it. When it gets worn out or tucked up i would be ready to make another with some different fabric :). Your pattern is cute and I am going to use it for the next towel i make. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Life is too pretty for some day. I would use them.

charlotte said...

I get your newsletter. Thanks!

Ellee said...

I'd definitely use and enjoy them, because I could remake them if necessary. My best friend's mom kept her wedding gift towels put away and never used them because they were "too nice" to use and she didn't want them to be ruined. Several years later there was a fire in their home and the towels were destroyed. No one ever got to enjoy the hand-embroidered towels, and the woman who embroidered them never saw her gift used and loved. How sad. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

I would use them eventually. I've decided that I don't need to have things that I don't use. The towels are really cute and would make great gifts.

gpc said...

They are really beautiful and it would be tempting to use them for show. But pretty much anything in my kitchen eventually gets used to wipe up a mess, so I'm sure they'd get used whether I wanted them to or not. :)

Leslie said...

They are very pretty, would be hard to use them. I'd put them out for show or to line a bread basket for a while, then use them for drying. Love them!

My instinct would be to use these beauties for show only. However, my practical side would eventually use them for their intended purpose. Thanks. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

lol

Elise Lea said...

I think I would like to pretend that they would be only for show - but I know they would get used at my house! Beautiful design!

Jen Barnard said...

I would use them, but I don't think I'd use the pretty fabric on them, just leave them plain. Tea towels don't last long in my house, so I'd keep the other fabric for something that would last.

Mom C said...

My sister made me some cross stitch tea towels that I used for show for a long time. Finally I decided they should be used and they have been but now they are stained and not for fancy any more. I feel good about using them but I'd like to have them all pristine and wonderful for visitors too. Its truly a toss up. Thanks.

Doris Rice said...

I'd use them. If they're that easy, you an make more when they begin to look ragged or stained.

Jane said...

They're just too, too pretty to use in my kitchen with my messy habits. Tomato sauce would ruin them. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kathy said...

I would make these for my daughter and she would definitely use them!
