Simple and Summery...Easy Hydrangea Tea Towels
In fact, I have had this project in mind for quite a while, but it just didn’t seem right any earlier. I guess I was waiting for the official arrival of summer! The wonderful graphics came from Karen at The Graphics Fairy who is always so generous with her lovely vintage images. You can find the blue hydrangea here and the white hydrangea here. And the really great thing about this graphic is that it doesn’t matter whether or not you flip it before you transfer it since there are no words!
It was so easy…just print the graphics on iron-on transfer paper. I printed them at 3 inches x 5 inches using PhotoScape and, following directions, added them to inexpensive flour sack towels. Mine came from Target at $3.99 for four of them! I already had them and everything that I needed in my stash, so this project was free! Woo hoo!
You may remember that I also used them for this project…with another fabulous graphic from The Graphics Fairy that got a little tweak. You can see the tutorial for this tea towel here. Don’t you love an easy and inexpensive project?
And as for summer…it seems to have arrived full force here as everywhere in the country, I guess! You know it’s hot when the staff prefers relaxing with some fresh catnip on the patio to hunting lizards in the garden! But in the coming week, temperatures will drop into the 80s…a regular cold front! I hope you are all staying cool as well!
