Silhouette Project-Graphic Dishtowels

I have another project for you using the images from the Silhouette Studio.  I showed you my Spring Greeting Cards several weeks ago using some fun images.  New images are added all the time to the Studio and there are some seriously fabulous ones!  

I used Erin's method of printing on fabric that she shared with us in this post.  So fun.  I used a light layer of spray adhesive to adhere my fabric to a piece of cardstock.  


I found two kitchen images that I loved, positioned them on the computer to be the size I wanted and filled in with the color black.

I stuck the cardstock with attached fabric into the printer and hoped for the best.


I was thrilled when it came out perfectly.


I had picked up some of these Ikea dishtowels for .49 cents a piece a few months ago.  You can't find a dishtowel cheaper and they were just begging for a fun image to be added to them.


I ironed them first, of course.


I cut out my images, placed my piece of fabric on the dishtowel, and pinned it in place.


I used black thread and hand stitched around the border of the fabric piece to secure it to the dishtowel.


I was super excited to see the finished product.


I tried them out in a few different places around the kitchen.


Love these images, especially the mixer.  I could go crazy doing this.  I like the simple black & white going on here but now my mind is spinning with ideas of blue images on a floral background and red images on a ticking stripe.  Oh, the possibilities...


***Disclaimer: These are to be used for decoration only.  Images printed on fabric will disappear when washed.***

If you haven't already, you really should check out the Silhouette Studio.  You do not have to own a Silhouette machine to do this project or to be a part of the Silhouette Studio.  So much fun to be had.

If using the Silhouette machine, you could try their fabric interfacing and have a cut-out image on a dishtowel or you could use their heat transfer paper to iron your images right on.

I will be partying on these blogs this week!

Happy Tuesday!

I'm one of your newer followers and am thoroughly enjoying your blog. I've been going through all your older posts as well. I've seen so many brilliant projects using the Silhouette out in blogland and is now on my personal wish list for my birthday next month.

they look so beautiful! i was wondering if you can wash them, have you tried yet?

Tiffany April 22, 2011 at 12:47 PM  

Sibylle, thanks for your sweet comment! No, you cannot wash them. They are for decorative purposes only!!! I did try beforehand with a scrap and the image completely disappears after a run in the washer! : )
