Shamrock 'n Roll: Two DIY St. Paddy's Day Flour Sack Towels
You guys!! I think I’ve finally hit a stride with my Cricut. I used to be so scared of it, believe it or not. I was just looking back a some old posts where I talked about avoiding the Cricut, but now I am loving it. Just in the past few months, I made a bubbly bar backdrop, some DIY koozies, and today I am sharing two St. Patrick’s Day themed kitchen towels that I whipped up!
What You Need
Plain flour sack or kitchen towels
Cricut Easy Press (or a regular iron will do)
Cricut Easy Press Mat (or heat safe surface)
Design 1: “Irish All the Dishes Were Done”
I have a small obsession with seasonal tea towels/flour sack towels. When I am strolling through stores, I am always tempted to buy them and when you can get some good ones on clearance, it’s hard not to toss them in the cart. They make great hostess gifts, especially when you pair them with a DIY utensil set.
Now that I am getting the hang of my Cricut and have learned the iron on process, too, I thought making my own flour sack towels might be a fun! So many of them you see in the store have cute sayings or seasonal puns, so I did a little brainstorming and the first one I decided on was “Irish All the Dishes Were Done.” Get it?! “Irish” instead of “I wish.” I am probably not the first person to think of this, but I made myself giggle a bit! I shared the design on Cricut Design Space and pinned it on Pinterest in case you want to use the file yourself!
Just cut and iron on! I snagged this plain green towel at Michaels during Christmas clearance time, but any plain green kitchen towel will do.
Design 2: “Shamrock ‘N Roll”
I love all of the fun towels with puns involving kitchen tools, so I thought it would be to do a little pun involving a rolling pin! Plus, I am total sucker for vintage rolling pins. It’s another item I have to stop myself from buying every time I’m out thrift shopping. But, aren’t collections of old rolling pins so fun to look at? I think so! I shared this design as well, so feel free to use it to make your own version of the towel!
Another simple, cut and iron with your Cricut machine. This time, I used green iron on vinyl and a white flour sack towel. You can pick up 5-packs of these at Walmart for under $5. Now I have some leftover to craft some Easter towels for myself or for gifts!
