There’s something about a pretty set of kitchen towels hanging on the stove that makes me feel like I have my life together. I especially love it when they match the season.
When I saw these gorgeous rust colored hand towels at Tuesday Morning, I knew that they would look beautiful for the Fall and Thanksgiving season.

Supplies for Cricut Kitchen Towels
- Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker Machine Did you see the review I did on the Cricut Maker?
- Set of kitchen towels
- Cricut® Foil Iron-on, Light Gold
- Iron or Easy Press
My kitchen towels have a herringbone texture, but the heat transfer stuck to it just fine. It did not keep the smooth texture though. It looked like a weathered hammered texture, but I love it.
The video below will show you how to make the split pumpkin design for these Cricut Kitchen Towels. I love that I was able to personalize them with our last name. It’s a great project if you’re new to using your Cricut Machine and Design Space.
The scroll leaf on the other Cricut Kitchen Towel can be found by searching “leaf” in the images on Cricut Design Space.
Using Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Place the glossy side of the heat transfer onto the mat. It feels really strange the first time!
- CUT YOUR DESIGN ON THE MIRROR SETTING! You want it to be backwards.
- Leave your design on the mat while weeding it. Weeding means taking off the excess vinyl. I use a pointy X-acto knife for weeding, but Cricut has a picking tool that works well.
- Peel the clear plastic off of your mat.
- The surface of the plastic will be slightly tacky. Place it against your fabric. Iron on the cotton setting for 20-30 seconds with firm pressure.
- Peel the plastic back slowly. If there are spots that aren’t stuck to the fabric, go back and iron them.
- Do not iron without the plastic over your decal.
This is a great project for beginners. If you’re knew to the Explore or Maker, I hope you will give it a try. If you’re intimidated, cut something simple at first and iron it on something from the Dollar Store.
Once you make one Heat Transfer project, you’ll be addicted. It’s OK though. You can make lots of awesome gifts for your friends!
I love this set so much. Now, I’m on the lookout for more solid towels in colors that I can use for other holidays.
