Halloween Kitchen Towel
Halloween can be a lot of fun and the decorations vary from cute to quite scary.
You do not need to buy new Halloween decorations if you are lacking of budget, reuse your old stuff with some easy tricks instead.
Halloween kitchen towels are one of the alternatives for your Halloween decorations.
It is easier for you to retouch your dull towels and do some magic tricks on them and make them into beautiful Halloween kitchen towels as part of your kitchen accessories.
Halloween kitchen towels are closely related to darker colors such as black, red, orange and dark brown.
You can start to collect your old towels with the matching colors you need.
Wash and dry the towel, or at least tumble it dry with a damp towel for 20 minutes.
While it’s tumbling, check the ribbon for wires.
If you find any, pull them out with pliers.
Once you get it, you can start to decide on the design of your Halloween kitchen towel.
There are lots of Halloween towel designs on the net.
Use them as references and draw the pattern on the towel.
If you are not good in drawing, you can print it and then copy it.
Choose the simpler patterns to make it easier.
You can use your old starches of fabric for the pictures or decorations on your towel.
Those fabrics can be arranged in to good mosaic pictures. You just need to sew the edges of the fabrics.
Lay out your Halloween kitchen towels and draw the pattern.
Lay the starch fabrics that you have cut according to your design on the pattern.
It is difficult to sew through the bottom so make sure your fabric ends above that.
Pin the starch of fabrics on their place.
Sew the top edge of the fabrics first, working carefully along the side seams, which will be a little bit difficult.
If you are using one piece of fabric, simply continue around the bottom and side like a “frame”.
If you are using more than one piece, you can sew the top edge of the next fabric and the bottom of the first fabric at the same time.
Do it continuously until you get your desired pattern.
If you have done your sewing, iron on the fabric pieces, removing the pin holding each piece as you do so.
Add some laces or other pattern when you feel like it but stick to the theme of your Halloween kitchen towel.
That’s it! A quick, simple and easy solution for your Halloween kitchen towel is done.
You can improvise with different colors and patterns of decorations if you want and even use the same idea on kitchen curtains.
