SUPER EASY CRAFT PROJECT - with flour sack towels
In the last 2 photos we show how you can make your own custom designed flour sack towels with just a few rubber stamps and ink. The stamps here are our own designs, but you can get amazing rubber stamps from many Etsy sellers. Just choose the designs you like and stamp across the bottom for a border only design (see the arrow towel) or you can stamp the entire towel for an all-over design (see the leaves towel). The weight of this fabric and softness allows the stamp to easily transfer onto the fabric leaving a clean design. These make great DIY gifts or use the towel as custom fabric for other sewing projects. At 30"x30" it's almost a 1/2 yard of fabric.
Flour sack towels, also known as cotton flour sacks, tea towels, cotton sacks, and other names - depending on your generation and possibly where you live. The towels have a long history that dates back to the 1800s when staples such as flour and sugar where packaged in tightly woven cotton bags or "sacks".
By the time the Great Depression hit, these sacks became useful for many things including curtains, aprons, dish towels, and quilting. Supply companies began printing pretty patterns on the sacks and women began trading patterns and collecting them.
This went on for decades until the economy in the mid century began to boom and paper bags repalced the cotton sack. Today this once popular item is now making a comeback. The simplicity of the humble flour sack cotton tea towel is being rediscovered an indespensible item to have around the house. No longer just for the kitchen, because they are lint free, they make great dusting cloths for all electronic devices, mirrors, windows, camping towels...we also use them at the Tiny House Farm as daily use cloth napkins.
