For example (think Mother's Day gifts here)
- Children's Art Work
- Old Family Recipes
|Tea Towel created using flour sacks from Target.|
I created this tea towel for my kitchen using the following:
- Flour Sack Towels: I purchased a set of 4 from Target for $3.99
- Ink Transfer Paper: Mine is a specialty paper from RPL Supplies. But you can purchase transfer paper from an Office Supply store.
- Printer: I have a Ricoh 7100. If you're using transfer paper from an office supply store, you can use your home printer.
- Heat Press or Iron: You'll need a hot iron to transfer the image from the paper to the towel. Follow the instructions on your transfer paper. If using a heat press, press for 20 seconds at 375 degrees.
- Image: You will need an image to put onto your towel. I used an image from My Vinyl Designer. But you could scan and use your child's art work. Or maybe an old family recipe.
Step 1: Get Flour Sacks
|Flour Sacks from Target. Four for $3.99|
Step 2: Print your image onto transfer paper.

Step 3: Iron image onto flour sack.
|Peel transfer paper off while hot. Otherwise, it's stuck to your towel.|
