Thanksgiving Hostess Gift

Hey there!  I have a friend who graciously serves Thanksgiving dinner each and every year.  I'm thankful she likes to entertain---because it's not my forte!  What I AM good at though, is making a quick and cute hostess gift to take to her!

I get a kick out of funny sayings, so I had to do something with this fun "Pour Some Gravy On Me" design.  I found both SVG designs (for cutting on my Silhouette Cameo) online at an Etsy shopped called BeeDoodleDigital. The designs were reasonably priced at just $3.00 each.

To get a good result, I used basic black Siser Easyweed HTV (heat transfer vinyl) and I SWEAR by this teflon pressing pillow.  Using the teflon pillow under the kitchen towels gives a really good seal between the towel and the heat press.  A good way to describe it is that it allows the vinyl to "sink into" the towel while it's being heat pressed.  I kept the temp low and pressed it at 300 for about 23 seconds.  Turned out great!

So I've told you where to get all the designs and supplies---I almost forgot to tell you where to get the towels!  Here they are on our website:  Dobby Border Kitchen Towels.

I'm on the lookout for some machine embroidery designs that have the same look/flavor to them.  If you know of any, let us know in the comments section!  I'd like to help the machine embroiderers out there make the same project!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  ----Susan & Crew
