Are you ready for the Hop-To-It challenge this week?! It’s the last challenge of the series (tear) but I’m so glad we are going out with a bang! I am getting so excited about all of the spring and Easter Crafts that keep popping up. It makes this time of year feel so fresh and cheerful. For this week’s challenge, I created Easter Bunny Tea Towels using flour sack towels. Oh they are SO soft!

These little towels are perfect for hanging in the kitchen or using for a causal party. I’ve never worked with flour sacks before, but now I am hooked. The minute I stumbled upon them at my local craft store, they instantly reminded me of all my grandma’s dish towels. I love how soft they are, the texture is perfect.

Supplies Needed:

- Two Flour Sack Towels (I found mine at my local craft store for $2.99 a piece!)

- 3″ Burlap Ribbon

- Black Textile Paint by Jacquard Products

- White Textile Paint by Jacquard Products

- Fine Tip Paint Brush

- Bunny Stencil (I used my Silhouette to cut my stencils out using this graphic)

I started by mixing about 3 tablespoons of white paint with one pea size drop of black paint to create a light gray color.

Then I placed my vinyl stencil (hard to see in picture) onto the fabric and carefully painted the edges.

Then I filled the bunny in. Once the paint was dry I had to go back over a few spots, but the paint in general has great coverage.

To add a little embellishment to the towels, I added 3″ burlap ribbon and gave it a little ruffled effect. I used ribbon that had wired edges which helped keep the shaped while I pinned.

Using a straight stitch to secure the ribbon to the towels and you are done!

      I love these adorable tea towels. Perfect for Easter but I have not worked much with the wired fabric so I have a question. Do you remove the wire after you sew into place? If it stays inside does it cause any problem when laundering? Thank you for your idea and reply!!!
