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!).
Keep reading to see how we made these notebook lined tea cloths…

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!
