Let's think ink...no, not a tattoo! Let's make a super quick and super easy tea towel in just a few minutes. Love to DIY and craft? You can make your very on farmhouse tea towels! And... yes, I said easy and in just a few minutes!
I made it with Couture Ink and transfers from Chalk Couture. You can find all the supplies on my inpendent designer website for Chalk Couture.
Chalk Couture Transfer
Step 1: Choose your transfer and ink colors. I used the Kitchen Closed from the Wicked Chicken transfer.
Step: 2: Lay your towel on the ink pad and smooth out all wrinkles (it's best to iron your fabric before beginning to remove all wrinkles). This holds your project in place and keeps ink for getting getting on your work surface.
Step 3: Write BACK on the back of your transfer. Remove backing from transfer and place on your towel. Press it down firmly and make sure you don't have any air pockets. I then put a painters tape around the edges. (I do this to keep me from getting ink off the transfer area.)
Step 4: Put a small amount of Couture Ink on your squeegee and start placing it on your transfer. See video for more details.
Step 5: Make sure your hands are clean of all ink and carefully remove your transfer.
Step 6: Immediately wash your transfer. Run it under warm water, lay on a towel and wipe both sides with the disinfecting wipe. Leave it to air dry. After dry put backing back on. the side not written on. This keeps it from sticking to the wrong side.
Step 7: Let it dry completely. You will need to iron both sides of your towel for 4 minutes each with your iron set to the highest setting.
Congrats., you have now made your very own Farmhouse Tea Towel! The transfers are reusable, so you can make many more for yourself or give as gifts.
