Use Iron-on Vinyl to Decorate a Hand Towel

You can choose the colors and patterns of the iron-on vinyl you use for this project. Instead of basic pink and green, I chose some cute patterned vinyl available through the Cricut online shop. You can mix and match pattern and solid colors as well as the different materials like flock or iron-on foil. Have fun creating your own unique look.

Materials

The pretty iron-on are both designer patterns you can buy from Cricut. The pink is from Anna Griffin and the teal and blue water color design is by Natalie Malan.

Instructions

  1. Follow on-screen instructions to cut the various watermelon shapes.
  2. Iron each layer separately, allowing the previous layer to cool a minute before applying the next layer.

I've already set up a Cricut Design Space canvas to help you get a quick start. Don't forget to hide the towel shape in the layout, it's just there as a guide.

The project canvas I set up includes a few other fruit shapes you can use as well. Mix and match your vinyl colors and patterns as well as the fabrics you use.
