I love quick and easy gift ideas! Last year I made Personalized Pot Holders, and showed you how to do it too, of course. And I also made this customized serving tray with a family name! So now we just need a kitchen towel! These are flour sack towels decorated with vinyl sayings that are super cute. And SO easy to make! With these kitchen towels, we can now make a whole kitchen gift basket, completely personalized for a family!

To make this project we need to start with fresh cotton dish towels. You can use actual flour sack towels, or just regular towels. The smoother the fabric, the easier it’s going to be to transfer your vinyl and keep it there, wash after wash. So for that reason, I recommend you avoid the terry cloth style kitchen towels.
Now we need iron-on vinyl, also known as heat transfer vinyl, for the decorations. I’m using black, red, yellow, green, and blue, but you can use any colors you want, of course! You do NOT need transfer tape when you use iron-on vinyl.
Tools necessary for this project include a way to cut your vinyl. I am using the Cricut Explore along with my fine-point blade and a green StandardGrip mat. You’ll also need a weeding tool for removing the excess vinyl before you apply it.
Now to get your vinyl onto your kitchen towel, you need a way to heat and press it on, such as a household iron or the Cricut EasyPress. I’m using the Cricut EasyPress 2 along with the Easy Press Mat. If you don’t have the mat, you can use a folded towel. I do not recommend an ironing board, however, as it can cause uneven heat distribution.
I’ve prepared four different designs for you to play with — “Happiness is Homemade,” “Squeeze the Day,” “Life is Short, Lick the Bowl,” and “The Dishes are Looking at Me Dirty Again.” SO fun! My designs have multiple colors, but you can use the same color if you wish — your choice.
And that’s it! This is a great beginner project ! So let me show you where to find the towel designs, and then I’ll show you how to cut and apply your vinyl decals to your towels.
