Kitchen towels with quotes

We still have several weeks to go until the holidays, so now is the time to make a few homemade gifts. One of the gifts I am making are these kitchen hand towels with quotes on them.

Kitchen quotes

I’ve made three quotes that you can download for free. There are two versions of each quote. One is the mirror image of the quote for easier printing. Click the links to download the printable quotes.

Cut out quote

Chose the quote you want to use, and get your iron-on transfer paper ready. Iron-on transfer paper is available at craft stores and some department stores. Carefully follow the printing instructions on the package. Select the reverse or mirror image on your printer if you are using the regular file, or just print out the mirror image printable. I like to start with a test print on plain paper to make sure everything is working right and to check its scale with the finished piece.

After the ink is completely dry, cut out the quote, leaving an 1/8-inch border around the design.

Iron on quote

Place the transfer quote-side down on the flour sack towel where you want the quote to be. Following the instructions on the package, iron the quote onto the towel. The package will explain the heat settings and time frames, depending on the brand and the type of material.

Peel off paper

Allow the fabric to cool completely. Carefully peel off the backing paper.

Tea towel with quotes

Give these flour sack towels with quotes to your family and friends, along with some homemade holiday cookies.
