I love these vintage Valentine card graphics and thought they would be cute on some "vintage" kitchen towels for a Valentine's Day gift.
This project is embarrassingly simple - all you need are the graphics, transfer inkjet paper, an iron and an ironing board. I took out a plain cotton towel from my stash and when I printed out the images I printed one a little smaller to test on this towel. As you can see it came out great - I think I have some off red ric-rac that I will sew around this towel (for me, not a gift).
Take your towels out of the package and iron out all the wrinkles and decide where you want to place the image.
Here is the lamb "Wool you be Mine?"
My favorite transfer paper is Lesley Riley's TAP Transfer Artist Paper - it may be more expensive but it always gives a wonderful result and a big plus you can use on any surface fabric, paper, wood, glass, canvas, metal, etc. I will put a link below.
I think the owl is my favorite....
All ready to go, now I just have to gift wrap and get into the mail.
