Once I saw this Halloween Witch from Graphics Fairy, I knew she needed to make her way into my Halloween decorations. I love that she is vampy and Betty Paige-ish, a little sexy, but not over the top. She is still PG for my house of boys... This may end up being a 'decoration' towel because I cringe at the thought of my messy boys drying their not so clean hands on this beauty.

Now this was easy and did not take much time at all. Picking how I wanted the embellishments took the most time, really, the sewing took 15 minutes max and that includes changing out the thread colors. I used iron-on transfer because I have many sheets left over from a previous project, but there are instructions on the GF site using 12 Easy Image Transfer Methods which may be helpful. My sewing machine is my friend, so I used it, but I know you can use iron-on tape though I can't attest to it's staying power. Otherwise, I have included a tute for you to make these vampy, Halloween towels.
Flour Sack Towels
Vampy Halloween Image
- Wash and iron Flour Sack Towels.
- Fold towels in half, cut and sew up small hem. (I did this because I took one of my decoration towels, which was bought from a boutique (yay, giftcard!) and it was half the size of the flour sack towels. You don't have to do this, but you will use quite a bit more ribbon/embellishments than necessary.)
- Print Image onto iron-on transfer paper according to package directions. I didn't flip mine because it wasn't important for this image.
- Figure out your design (this took the most time for me.)
- Iron on your image and sew on your ribbons/embellishments.
- Hang your towel and admire for the rest of the day!
I imagine these ladies don't do carpool or coupons, so maybe I can live vicariously through these towels when waiting in carpool, clipping coupons... I hope this puts some spice into your Halloween decorations!
