DIY Handwritten Recipe Towels

Because of the increasing prevalence of digital media in our lives, handwriting may not be as important in the future as it once was, but that does not mean it is without use. I am not even referring to the cognitive benefits that are gained when children write with their hands. I’m talking about the sentimental and historical losses we suffer when people stop writing things out by hand. With that idea in mind, I used some of my family’s handwritten recipes and turned them into decorative towels for my kitchen.
Time: 15 Minutes Difficulty: Easy
Turn handwritten recipes into sentimental, and useful, kitchen decor.
Be sure to reverse the image before you print it out!
Follow the directions for your brand of transfer paper.
In just minutes you have pretty personalized towels!
I think these would make a fantastic gift for a new wife, mother, or grandmother.

      @Mommaduck I haven't washed mine yet, but the instructions that came with the transfers say to wash in cold water on a gentle cycle.

    I used it on some t shirts and it held up well. Have washed them many times and the image is still there and intact.
