Sea Inspired Tea Towels
by June Pfaff Daley

Last August, I designed my first batch of sea stencils for Stencil Girl. Since then, I’ve been anxious to follow up with some additions to the collection. Today I am proud to debut Sea Urchin and Sand dollar stencils. If you’ve walked into any home store lately, it’s quite clear that ocean-inspired décor is hot. Check out Pottery Barn…shells, starfish and the like are everywhere. The great thing about stencils is you can make your own home décor less expensively and tailor to match your favorite color palette. Last August, I showed you how to make a variety of sea pillows. (Click here for the post Today, I’m going an easier route with tea towels. Tea towels are simple and quick to whip up. They make great gifts especially for Mother’s Day and/or end-of-year teacher gifts.

 1. Cut a 15” x 22” rectangle from the huck towel fabric.
2. Position fabric over a sheet of paper to prevent any bleed through on surface below.
3. Plan design with stencils. With painters tape, tape off any areas of the stencil you do not want to paint.
4. Using fabric paint and a stencil brush, stencil your design on the fabric. Be sure the paint is of a thicker consistency to prevent bleed through.

5. Let  dry. When design is dry. Iron the back side of fabric to set the paint.
6. Fold edges of towel over twice ¼” all the way around back of towel and pin. Include a piece of ribbon in the upper right hand corner for hanging.

7. Sew edge.

8. Enjoy!
