Easter Tea Towel Tutorial, say that 5 times fast! Kidding. This week I’m working on switching over to Easter décor. Gradually. It’s been a winter/spring roller coaster in Colorado, which is normal. It will feel like spring one day and then the next I’m going for soup and the cozy fireplace. For those spring days, decorating for spring and Easter really brightens up the house!
Easter Tea Towel Supplies
Today I’m making a “hello Easter” tea towel for my kitchen. I got this design on SoFontsy: here. I really like this artist’s style! I’m using my go to Siser Easyweed HTV in black and mint. I love the mint and will definitely be procuring more! Added bonus, it matches my beautiful heat press. I got my tea towels on Amazon. They do require a lot of pressing after washing, so be prepared.
Silhouette Studio Settings
I ungroup and cut my designs by color. Be sure to mirror your design before cutting your HTV! For my Cameo 4, I used the following cut settings:
Blade Depth: 3
Heat Press Settings for HTV
I really like designs like this where I can press multiple colors in one round. I cut away the excess carrier sheet so I can fit the whole design in on one go. I’m using my StarCraft Heat Press for this. I’ll be pressing with these settings:
Time: 15 seconds
I like to remove the carrier sheet while it’s hot, mostly because I’m excited to see the design. The Easyweed is a hot or cold peel so this is okay, but if you’re using a different brand, check the instructions. Some HTV carrier sheets can only be peeled after they cool. If it’s not easily peeling off, just wait for it to cool and it should release.
Voila! Easter towel! These can help brighten your kitchen for Easter and would also make great hostess gifts!
