Cute Tea Towel
A nostalgic project posted by our designer Kay Ellen.
I was in my Mom's drapery workroom recently and I found a huge bag filled with vintage yo-yo's. What I did not know is that my Mom had been making them off and on since she was 13 years old. She also pointed out that she had used my sister's and my old clothes to make several of them.
My wheels starting spinning thinking of DIY creative projects using her yo-yo's and SEALAH no sew tape.
A tea towel was my first creation that I decided to make. It was easy and quick, a great gift idea! I purchased a towel from the ninety-nine cent store, used my Mom's yoyo's, 1 yard of lace from Jo Anne's fabrics and some rickrack from the dollar bin at Michael's.
I embellished and attached each element with SEALAH tape, a clear, double sided and super easy to apply adhesive that is machine washer and dryer safe for many applications.
Press Down and apply doubled sided tape...
Peel off back and start adding embellishments...
I added the tiny red rickrack for a pop of color on top of the lace.
SEALAH adhesive tape comes in several widths, my favorite product is the 5 yard variety pack, it comes with five rolls (1/8”, 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4”) that are five yards long. For the Cute Tea Towel project I used three of the widths from the pack. I used 1/8" for the rickrack, 1/4" for the lace and 3/4" for the yo-yo's.
This fun little project took me about 15 minutes to create and it has been a beautiful addition to my kitchen.
