Retro Steamed Coffee Towel

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Life can be hectic, and well, plain hard.  There are many joys in my life that I remind myself of, then give my daughter a hug and dive into a little small something creative.  This one I did in an hour.  It's like I just had to do this, so all would be right in the world. Kinda like cooking...or especially baking!  I'm not that good at it, but it totally changes my mood.  I think I'll make another loaf of bread....

Anyway...on to the towel.

 I used freezer paper and drew my stencil. I cut it out carefully with an exacto knife. I ironed it on in pieces.
 I painted it in Red and waited 30 minutes to peel it off.  I then waited a few hours and ironed it with a cloth over top.
 I really like how it turned out.  Retro...and I love coffee!

So many possibilities! What would you want stenciled on your towel?
