Guest Post: Sugar Bee Crafts

Hi everyone!! I'm Mandy, from over at Sugar Bee Crafts:
Sugar Bee Crafts: sewing, recipes, crafts, photo tips, and more!

Here's the whole gang on vacation this past summer:

I enjoy all things crafty and have lots of DIY and tutorials on my blog.  I even have a link party on Tuesdays so I can see your craftiness - then I show off a bunch of you on Wednesdays.  So come on by today and link up!!

You might know me from a couple of my posts (click picture to check them out!):

Today I want to share a quick how to make custom kitchen towels.  With the new year, we all want to do a little sprucing up.  This is an easy way to add a little something to your kitchen.
It's one of those projects that after you do it, you think, "well why did I wait so long to do that!?!" because there was nothing to it.

So a quick run down on how to make custom kitchen towels:

  • Buy a pack of plain kitchen towels (I found these ones at walmart)
  • Cut strips of fabric
  • Iron the edges of the strips under
  • Pin the strip of fabric down to the towel, then just stitch along the edge. 

That's it!!  I love how they turned out - I made 6 - 2 of each kind.
I know it looks silly to have 3 towels hanging on the oven, but I like them all and couldn't decide which would get the place of honor (if hanging on that old oven is an honor)...

So go grab some plain towels and jazz them up for yourself - this is one of those projects that you'll love!!

And pop on by Sugar Bee Crafts sometime - - if you love kitchen things, I am on the brink of a big redo - - I still love my wall (see more pics HERE) but I am about to paint all the cabinets - wish me luck!!
