Spiced-Up Tea Towels

I love the ideas from Ashley's makeitandloveit blog. She posted about dressing up plain-old tea towels to match your kitchen. I made these for my good friend Kim's bridal shower. Her kitchen will be red, tan and black.

Here's how to:
Cut a 2 1/2 inch strip of fabric - measure the width of your tea towel and cut length of fabric 1 inch longer (length-wise)
Iron your fabric edges over 1/4 inch around entire perimeter.
Place on tea towel and fold 2 edges around the back side of tea towel.
Stitch 1/4 inch seam around entire strip.
Embellish with buttons, yo-yos's, applique, et.
(Yep, there's that fabric yo-yo showing up again. :)
