Spring Tea Towel

Bring a little springtime cheer to any kitchen with this embellished tea towel tutorial.

Spring Tea Towel Sewing Tutorial perfect for scraps

For a sweet hostess gift, pair this spring inspired tea towel with a home baked treat or your favorite kitchen utensil. We love the idea of using a pretty towel like this one to line a bread basket for extra table decor.

Applique and Crochet Tea Towel Tutorial

The tutorial employs three different creative techniques for embellishing a tea towel; applique, crochet, and hand stitching. Love the look of the crochet scalloped edge but need a video to help you each step of the way? Be sure to check out this quick one from lGaurisCrochetHub.

If crochet is not your cup of tea, consider alternatives such as a pompom trim, large ricrac, or even a fabric ruffle to the bottom edge of the tea towel.
