  1. Neat idea. ๐Ÿ™‚ In my daughter’s first bedroom, we framed scrap fabric from my mom’s sewing adventures circa 1990, but I never would have thought to make art out of a dish towel! Such cool prints on them in black, white, and sepia, too! =D (Love the scholarly badger).

    1. Thanks Yvonne, I actually bough the badger/raccoon in the plate version.

  2. Such a great idea, I never knew they had such cute dishtowels. I love the owl one too. Glad to hear your kitty is doing a little better ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Love it! I’ve been on the hunt for some dishtowels for our kitchen. Maybe I’ll have to look for some to turn into art as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Well, I’m so bummed that you can’t find it online, but I seriously love this! Great idea…I’ve never thought to use dishtowels that way.

  5. ooh, those are great! fabulous idea! I have to say, I am totally on board with the feather trend right now. Go feathers!

  6. Why have I never thought of this?!

    Also, I’ll be thinking of you and your furbaby. I can only imagine your heartbreak ๐Ÿ™

    1. Aww thank you, she is doing better. I know that she is still sick but she will be around for a little longer and I don’t think she is suffering right now.

  7. H&M has such cool designs! I’m loving the owl print towel. Great art idea, Julia!
    And I’m glad to read that your kitty is feeling a bit better. Best wishes to her.

  8. Julia! This is so cool! I love this idea! I could see some kind of metallic glaze over these too! What a great idea …always killing it over there! BTW, I am in my own rainbow Hell over here too! Why didn’t I think of manufacturing these things! The million dollar idea, right!?!

  9. So smart and so easy…that’s my kinda project! Love it! Thanks for sharing Julia!

  10. You should win a prize for being so creative!! LOVE this, I need to go check out our H & M!! Happy to hear your kitty is doing better!

  11. What a great idea! I pinned a dishtowel from etsy once with the intention of framing it for Ramona’s room. I bet putting it on a canvas is so much easier and better looking!

  12. Super cute! Cheap and easy with a big impact…my favorite types of projects. I keep forgetting that H&M has such great accessories. Need to check them out more often.

  13. I love it Julia!!! It’s so beautiful!! Also, your posts weren’t showing up in my bloglovin feed until today, then I just saw about 8!!! Sorry for the posts I’ve missed. I have catching up to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Kenz and no worries my bloglovin does strange stuff all the time too.

  14. ๐Ÿ™‚ very nice, I didn’t think you made it out of a dishtowel; very clever Julia ๐Ÿ™‚ (I love the zebra one very much)
    glad your cat is feeling better with the antibiotics and that gets to be with you for a little bit longer ๐Ÿ™‚
    wish you a beautiful week Julia!

  15. I love this! It’s such an easy and cheap way to make your own custom artwork. Can’t wait to see it up on your wall! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Sara, I’ve been waiting for a kitchen update from you. How have you been?
      And thanks so much!

  16. Awesome idea Julia!! Leave it up to you to take something ordinary and turn it into a chic piece of art! Will be copying this idea for my house!

  17. Very cool idea! I stretched fabric around canvases in my son’s nursery and it’s one of my most-pinned posts. We all love simple and impactful. I Love this because you could even switch it out seasonally for only a few bucks and a few minutes.

  18. Fun idea! I always love the millions of awesome tea towels but don’t necessarily want to destroy them in my kitchen. Problem solved!

  19. Just wanted to let you know you inspired my post over at laughingabi today ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good morning,
    Being a DIY newbie I would love to know what type of stapler you use on this canvas? Once again I totally love all the stuff you do and I am just trying to do stuff and hopefully I will gain confidence to try other things.

    1. Hi Lynn and thanks so much. I used a regular stapler which you can buy at any craft store. Nothing fancy. Hope that helps.

    I just made the owl one! It looks so cool! Thanks for such an easy and cheap idea. My little boy asked for one for his room, glad I ordered two of the towels!! I love it so much where I hung it and don’t want to give it up.
