Vintage YoT: DIY Halloween Guest Towels

As I was putting out my Halloween decorations last week, I found these Halloween guest towels (which I made a couple years ago)… and they still look good! 

Halloween Handtowels - Yesterday on Tuesday
 Supplies:  Orange Hand Towels (I picked up mine for $2.78 apiece on clearance at Target). Avery T-Shirt Transfer paper, Fabri Tac, Canvas, Ribbon, Sewing Machine with a 'Denim" needle, an iron and your favorite Halloween Clip Art. I used some free images from The Graphics Fairy.

I found four vertical graphics I really liked and printed them out at 4 x 6.

 Print your image onto the the T-Shirt Transfer paper.  Follow the directions on the Avery package to transfer it to the canvas. Cut it out, leaving a 1/2 inch or so border around the picture.
