I think it’s safe to say I love my sewing machine and I’m loving decorating for fall. So, here I go with some new fall creations.
Ever since I checked out this post from Centsational Girl and this one from Mini Manor, I’ve been dying to make my own tea towels. I purchased 2 yards of linen for $22 and was able to make 4 regular size towels (23″ x 16″) and 4 small towels (12″ x 11″)
I pressed and pinned each towel.
Ran a seam all the way around.
And then I grabbed all the necessary items to add a pretty decoration: stencils, paint, fabric medium, stencil brushes, and a palette.
Before I removed the stencil I was a little nervous that some of the paint might bleed since I hadn’t worked with linen before, but I think it turned out pretty good.
I’ve also been working on putting a fall tablescape together. It’s pretty much all set, I just needed to make napkins. I found some really pretty cotton quilters fabric from Joann’s and grabbed 2 yards. This gave me 8 napkins that are 19 inches by 15 inches.
I used the same technique to make the napkins as I did for the towels.
Now I have some beautiful new linens to add to my fall collection.
Come back on Tuesday to see my fall tablescape! And then I promise, I’ll be done with the fall stuff =)
