I have a really cute Halloween tea towel but I didn’t decorate this year and didn’t want to pull out all (there are many) of my Halloween boxes to find one towel. I had an inspiration to make a tea towel from a drop cloth and it worked like a charm!
Making this was easy. I started by measuring a favorite tea towel and added an inch to each end and each side for the hem. 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 leaf was cut out of orange felt and stitched into place using embroidery thread and a blanket stitch.
I plan to make a turkey version of this towel for Thanksgiving and hopefully a few Christmas themed ones. I think that this would make a great gift, too.
