DIY cake hand towel

Have a few scraps and about 45 minutes to spare?

Make a couple of cake hand towels!

I first saw this sweet idea over at Julie's place.

She shared a wonderful DIY.


You will never want to leave her me.

So here is my version :)

I cut a cake plate like hers using a piece of card stock.

I used it to cut out all of my fabric cake plates.

I cut 3 strips of this wonderful trim ruffle about 5 " each.

I ironed my cake stand onto my towel with some web.

Julie's DIY explains it all.

After it was ironed on, I zig zagged it on. FUN!!!

For the record...I am no pro and I'm sure you can spot my boo boos

but it was FUN!!

I think it was my favorite part of the whole project!

After I had my cake plate in place. I layered my cake fluff ribbon.

Julie had candles on top of cute!

I decided to put a cherry on top of this one.

For this one I made a ribbon rose.

You can find my DIY for ribbon roses here.

OK..I think I may be hooked on these!

Now I'm wanting to make a chocolate one like Julie's..

Oh these are so addicting..LOL

Happy crafting!

  6. Susie,

    Cute, cute,cute. A suggestion: when you are doing zigzag, place a sheet of typing paper under your design. It gives the needle something to grip to and makes it much easier. Try it!
