I RULE With Rouge Et Noir Paris Prints

While blog surfing a few weeks ago I came across a post talking about an Etsy shop that sold graphics in PDF format.  The Daily Dream at Etsy has many graphics to choose from and she encourages you to use them on your own crafting projects and to sell them at fairs, boutiques etc.....  I fell in love with the royal crown and the words "I RULE".  My first idea was to create a tea towel with it and sell some of them in Stephanie's boutique, ROOM 5 in Ozark MO.   I purchased some $1 towels at Target, doubled it and added an Eiffel Tower print as the reverse side. 
I then got HP transfer paper to run through my HP printer and created my transfer sheet.  This weekend, Stephanie and I ironed on the transfer (well.....Stephanie did all the ironing, I stood over her and read the instructions!).  After we got it made we thought about it for a while and decided that this first attempt was too small for a kitchen towel and would not hang correctly over the oven handle of the stove. 
So this first attempt will be going to baby Macyn because I'm sure everyone in her family thinks that she (at the young age of 6 weeks!) rules the house!  This one will work great for a burp cloth and I will have to keep working on this idea to make it work for a kitchen towel.
Scroll down to see all those I have linked to this week......
