Peeps and Eggs | Applique Easter Hand Towel

March 26, 2016

I've realized lately that besides Christmas and Halloween, I'm sorely lacking in holiday decor. My current home decor color scheme isn't very pastel friendly but I couldn't resist making this towel.

The idea came to me while I was digging through my fabric stash. I originally wanted to make a table runner, but I found a flour sack hand towel that I had been saving for an embroidery project. The towel is the perfect pastel pink. Doesn't it look good together?

I quickly drew an egg and peep style bunny in illustrator and then used my Silhouette software to trace them and prepare them for cutting. I used this method to cut and adhere the shapes. Just click the picture to go to the tutorial.You can download the file here.

I ironed the shapes onto my towel, then I used a fine zig-zag stitch to applique the edges. I always opt for the heavy duty Heat n' Bond, which warns not to sew it, but I've never had any issues. The result is a festive and useful decoration.

Hope you and yours have a fantastic Easter!
