Our mini towel ornament is a great accent to use in a variety of ways in your primitive decorating scheme. In addition to using them on evergreen and twig trees, hang them on pegs or decorate packages with them for a little something extra. Make them by the dozen for gifts or your next craft show.
You will need---
- Homespun fabric scraps
- Bamboo skewers or 1/8" dowel rod
- 1/2" Rusty Stars
- Heavy cotton thread, such as candle wick thread
- White glue
- Ironing board and iron
- Cut a bamboo skewer or dowel rod long.
- Cut fabric strip wide and long.
- Hold the cotton thread about 1/4" from one end of the bamboo or dowel section and tie a knot.
- Run out enough cotton thread to make a nice loop hanger and tie it in a knot 1/4" from the other end. Clip off excess threads from knots. Secure with a tiny dot of glue if you wish.
- Heat your iron to a suitable temperature for your fabric.
- Lay fabric right side down on the ironing board.
- Bring long sides together in the center and overlap 1/4".
- Finger press folds and then iron.
- Bring short ends together so that the raw, long sides are to the inside. Make one end about 1/4" longer than the other for the front side of your mini towel.
- Finger press fold and then iron.
- Unplug your iron.
- Place your fabric section between the cotton loop and the skewer or dowel so that the second fold rests on the skewer or dowel.
- Decide the placement for your rusty star.
- Glue the rusty star to the fabric towel. Put more glue between the fabric layers behind the rusty star to hold them all together.
- Weight your mini towel down just enough to hold it while the glue dries thoroughly.
