Christmas Tree Tea Towels {Tutorial}

Hi there! I hope you had an excellent weekend! I was busy sewing up some fun Christmas related tutorials for you guys! Don't worry, these tutorials are quick and easy, so you have plenty of time to whip these up before December!  I had some left over scraps from my 25th and Pine charm pack from this project, and thought I'd better use every last bit of my charm pack, because I just love this line of fabric! 

You all know how I have a slight obsession with toweling, right?  Well I came up with another project featuring my favorite toweling! A fun Christmas Tree Tea Towel! 

You guys, this project is so darn easy! It literally took me about 15 minutes to make, and I am very happy with these darling little trees!  They are so fun and festive, and seriously require very little sewing.  You could jazz these up with all sorts of embellishments.  You could add some ric-rac, buttons, and any other trims you like! You could even put some cute little stars atop the tree.  Your options our endless on these trees!

Alright, let's whip up one of these together!

Green fabric scraps (I used my 25th and pine charm pack)
Brown scraps (for stumps)
Fusible web
Matching thread

Before you begin, hem your toweling on the top and bottom.

Step 1: Iron your fusible web onto your fabrics.  (According to package directions)  Then with your pattern piece trace out your trees and cut them out.  Then cut out some stumps.  I just did random sizes for this.  No bigger than an inch wide.  (I actually made one stump longer, than in the picture. You will see it in next picture)

Step 2: Iron them onto your toweling.  You can arrange them however you want. You can even do different sized trees.  Use your creativity for this, and change it up how you like it! :)

Step 3: Stitch around the trees to secure.  I just did a straight stitch.  I used matching green thread for the trees, and a brown thread for the stumps. 

That's it! How easy was that! You can literally do this in 15 minutes! I love my festive tree towel, and can't wait to hang it up in the kitchen!

Check back tomorrow for another fun and easy tutorial!

Talk to you soon,
