Monogramed Tea Towel | The Flamingo Chronicals: Monogramed Tea Towel

Monogramed Tea Towel


It's wedding season and I am getting prepared for all the fun handmade gifts to go out. I love how this cute monogrammed tea towel for a cute couple I know came out. It was so quick to make using Joy Iron on Letters.

monogram letters
I started with a pre-purchased towel with the absolutely cutest pom pom trim. I love pom pom trim! I think everything is better with a little pom pom trim added to it!! I selected the 3" Monogram font from Joy Iron-on Letters along with an ampersand and some hearts from other sets. 

versamagic ink
It is so easy to color the letters to match your projects. My favorite method is to use VersaMagic ink, but you can also use dyes, spray inks, paints, - pretty much anything! After inking well I set the letters aside to dry. 

heat resistant tape
To make sure everything ends up where I want it I like to use my quilting ruler to measure out positions. Once I have everything in place I use heat resistant tape to secure the pieces before I iron. The tape will hold the pieces in place, but will leave no residue on the project. When you are done ironing you simply pull the tape off! 

etched glasses

Look how cute it turned out! I will be gifting this towel with the toasting glasses I etched. To see how I made the glasses see this post


I like to use my ironing pad and my new Oliso iron so that I can work on a counter in my studio.

And the ironing mat here. This had made my life so much easier not having to drag out my ironing board every time I need to iron a tiny thing!
