Do you love all of the pretty tea towels as much as I do! Especially around the holidays. I was gifted these cute heart and XOXO towels. Some pretty trims, scissors and fabric glue turned them into a cute apron and embellished towel, pot holder trio. Just a yard of each trim plus a couple of fun appliques completed the whole set. This NO Sew project uses Fabri-tac which dries clear, is flexible and washable!

7.Glue pom pom trim along back edge of pot holder. Trim off excess. Cut a 2” heart from black felt. Use remaining trim to glue around heart. Glue heart to pot holder and glue applique in place.
8.For the heart towel glue the braid trim along the bottom of the towel in two strips. Tie a small bow from the last piece of ribbon and glue to center of heart.
