Loving fruit slice DIY s this week  (and still have more to come!)
I had this idea in mind since last summer when I saw the round towel bythe beach people. I kept the idea in my head all this time untilll NOW !!!

The ones by the beach people are more “towel like”, I used thick coton which makes it more of a towel/table cloth/picnic blanket.

Here’s what you need to make it

1) With the string, attach the chalk to a stick to make a compass. Trace a circle that is the width of the fabric (about 1,20 m)

2) Once you have your circle, cut it

3) With the iron, apply the bias following the packet instructions

* If you have several pieces like I did, just overlay them and continue

(p.s.your fabric might change color when you iron, it’s normal and temporary!)

4) Print the template, cut out the seeds and use them as a stencil (I used the medium and small ones)

*For the paint to hold, iron once it is dried*

6)  With your sewing machine, sew the pompoms all around, under the towel on the bias so you can see only the pompons.
