Ruffled This is a lovely tea towel to sew for those who have lots of pretty fabric scraps. You will need to find strips of fabric for this project; square or round scraps will not work. A ruffler foot was used for sewing the trim of this DIY tea towel. If you don't have one, you can do it the manual way by pulling one of the threads until you ruffle the strip of fabric.

Prairie Points

Prairie Points The printed fabric triangle trim that you see here are called Prairie Points. Aren't they cute? They are easy to make, too. You will sew two strips of fabric together. You then cut the sewn strips to make squares. After that, you fold these squares to make the Prairie Points. You then attach them to your tea towel. Fun, right?

Notebook I love all things notebook or notepad-inspired. If you feel the same, you will enjoy this fun tea towel tutorial. The blue lines for these towels were sewn using a machine. The thick vertical line in red, however, was embroidered.

Tassel The tassels for this DIY tea towel are made of embroidery floss. You can, of course, also buy ready-made tassels. I think they are available by yard in your craft store. Simply attach them by hand stitching to the short ends of your tea towel and you're done.

Neon Bias

Neon Bias Adding bias tape to the sides of a tea towel is probably one of the easiest ways to do this project. But if you want your tea towels to showcase undeniable style, we suggest combining modern neon with a classic print. Case in point: this toile de jouy and neon combo.

Crocheted Oh, how gorgeous! When you're adding trim to your tea towels, you will want to consider the colors of your final products. The red and white crocheted sections work here because their hues can be found in the tea towels as well. Of course, if you want an attention-grabbing tea towel, you can choose a crochet trim that clashes with your fabric.
