I love this time of year for a million trillion reasons, but one is it is a DIYer’s dream! It is such a fun time to make something for someone else and have it mean a little bit more. This year I was trying to think of something fun I could make as a gift to friends and family and when I teamed up with Zazzle, all my personalized gifts ideas came true. Seriously though, Zazzle is the one stop shop to create and personalize anything. And their new fabric is amazing! Designing it is so fun and simple. I decided to create and make some cute christmas tea towels. They can be rolled up, tied with a bow and given with cookies. They are useful and cute too. Basically a fabulous gift idea.
You can start by designing your own fabric or you can be like me and use an already made design. I bought mine from creative market and loved the color options. Its a seamless pattern which works amazing with fabric. You can adjust the size of the design and even get a preview of what it will look like. You guys, I seriously want to make fabric all day long, it really was that fun.
Now on to the diy …
