A drop cloth tea towel is an easy craft project that can be customized for any season.
Since it’s fall, I added a fall leaf to my tea towel.
Hanging decorative towels to coordinate with the season is one way that I enjoy decorating my kitchen.
These pear towels and the monogramed towel have been on my stove for a few weeks and I decided that it was time for a change.
How to Make a Drop Cloth Tea Towel
I had an inspiration to make a tea towel from a drop cloth and it worked like a charm!
Cut Drop Cloth
Cut a section of drop cloth 19.5″ x 28″.
Iron Edges and Sew
Make a 0.5″ fold and iron into place. Fold over another 0.5″.
Miter the corners and then sew each seam.
Add a Leaf
Cut a leaf out of orange felt and pin to the tea towel.
Stitch into place using embroidery thread and a blanket stitch.
I chose a maple leaf but any shape leaf could be added.
The blanket stitch is not only decorative, but also holds the leaf into place.
Press the towel using a hot iron and then hang into place.
Hang the Towel
I enjoy having a seasonal towel hanging from my stove.
This project was easy and didn’t take long to complete. I’m now ready to make a decorative towel for every season.
After I made this towel, I made a turkey version for Thanksgiving.
This project would make a great gift!
