Ten Tea Towel Projects

The tea towel. Such a humble kitchen necessity. Its primary function maybe to wipe dishes, but they are after all, a piece of fabric, and these days some of the designs and colours are so beautiful it seems a crime to use them as a cleaning cloth.

So today I’ve done a round up of some fabulous things you can make with tea towels!

1. Use as a practical and eco-friendly gift wrap – perfect for wrapping a cook book! Idea found here at thekitchn.com.

2. Make a cute apron using this great tutorial at Skip to My Lou

3. Make an awesome cushion cover using this tutorial by Magdalena from The Craft Revival.

4. Frame a tea towel to make some stunning art for your space, using this tutorial from House 8810.

5. Make a sweet little girl’s skirt using this quick and easy tutorial by Hayley from Welcome to the Mouse House.

6. Cuteness overload – use this fabulous tutorial by Obsessively Stitching to make a toddler bathrobe! Love!

7. Make a tote bag using this easy tutorial by Anna Maria Horner.

8. Make a stylish plastic bag organiser using this Martha Stewart tutorial.

 9. Make a cute sun hat using this free pattern and tutorial by Elizabeth Abernathy.

10. And of course I couldn’t do a tea towel round up without including my Postcard Pinafore tutorial!

So there you have it – sewing fun with tea towels! Next time you are shopping you will have to check out the selection at your local store!
