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!).

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!
