PTI's MIM #130 Heat 'N Bond




TGIM!
 Because. MIM is back! Phew! I know, we all had plenty of fill in, but I for one, adore MIM's!
Erin brings out the Heat 'N Bond, and some PTI dies for decorating, well, just about anything fabric!
I make kitchen towels every year for family and friends, so this tutorial was the perfect
'get going' project.
Labor Day is the start of fall, and that signals 'Holiday Season'. 
Halloween is right around the corner, folks.
Time to put away seashells and bring out the pumpkins!
(can you tell I'm obsessed the decorating for the seasons?)
PTI has a great die set from the Shape Up Series called Pumpkin Sections.
Used it to cut 2 different quilting cottons, and pieced to form the pumpkin on
a linen fabric.
I usually buy 3 or so yards of it when it's on sale, and sew up the edges to form a towel body.
Then I can decorate them for any holiday.
A strip bound by rick rack and you're done!
Simply Chartreuse stem and craft felt mouth and eyes.
PTI button and twine.
Erin, thank you, your tutorial was a joy!

    1. Kara, I like the 100% linen cuz of it's texture. But I've also used rustic muslin. Both are fine.
