French Tea Towels

I came across some dollar store flour sacks I bought a while ago last night.  I had originally planned to coffee dye them for some pillows but it's been a while since I did some tea towels and I was in the mood for something quick and not so messy.  I found this great French image from The Graphics Fairy and...
...thought it would look divine on my towels.  I printed the image onto to some transfer paper and simply ironed them on.  Still, I felt like they could use a little something extra so I went to my fabric drawer and thought vintage lace would do the trick.
I'm also thinking they'd look beautiful with ruffle bottoms, but since I haven't quite mastered making ruffles yet, the lace will do.

Wine and spirits have never looked so good!

I was hoping to go the Ikea here last week, but didn't get to. I heard they have a good package for the money of towels. The lace looks really pretty on the bottom.

Love, love, love them! I hope you'll link them up tomorrow evening for the Knick of Time Tuesday party.

By the way, I've got an idea brewing around that I'd like to talk to you about, so I'm sending you an email!
