Stenciled Tea Towels or Bags

I had some free eco-friendly bags and a simple tea towel that I decided to decorate. I will use them to wrap gifts for the holidays and not only save on wrapping paper (which wastes money and our resources), but will also be a pretty and useful gift for my recipients!


Total Time: 10 minutes



  1. I used a piece of cardboard under the single piece of fabric just in case it bled through to the table. It didn't.
  2. Choose your design and lay in on your single thickness piece of fabric. Tape it in place.
  3. Using your fabric pens fill in your design template.
  4. Add colors that complement your design.
  5. REMOVE the template and any masking tape.
  6. Iron your design from the BACK of the fabric piece for 4 minutes.
  7. It really shouldn't bleed through much, but use a cardboard under everything if you want to be super careful.
  8. Simple, but pretty!
