• DIY Notebook Tea Cloths

    We’re having a great back to school themed week here! Monday we made a colorful family calendar, yesterday we organized our after school snacks into pretty jars and today we have this easy DIY notebook tea cloth, which would make a great teacher gift. If you remember, we’ve done a couple notebook themed projects before like the notebook lined tee and the notebook tote (another great teacher gift!).

    1. Measure out your soft linen into hand towel size.

    2. Make 1 inch marks down the front with a pencil and ruler.

    3. Start sewing along those lines with bright blue thread.

    4. To hem we used no-sew hem tape, just fold it twice and iron the strip inside of the hem.

    5. With embroidery thread and an embroidery needle, make a dashed red line about 4 inches from the edge.

    Iron and you’re done!
