I love having something a cute seasonal towel to hang on my stove. Making a drop cloth tea towel embellished with a fall leaf inspired me to create a Thanksgiving version.
Making this was easy. I cut a piece of drop cloth 19.5” x 28” to form the towel.
I then ironed each side down twice at 0.5”. After ironing, I sewed the sides down and mitered the corners. A turkey was cut out of burlap and fused to the fabric with fusible webbing. To add decorative detail, I outlined the turkey with a zig-zag stitch using brown thread. Orange binding tape and white rick-rack from my stash add a punch of color to the bottom of the towel.
In less than an hour’s time, I had a cute towel to enjoy through Thanksgiving.
Who can believe that Thanksgiving is a week away? Where has fall gone?
