  • First, use your Cricut to design and cut your stencil for your towel. Be sure to size the design to fit your towel before cutting. Remove the unwanted areas of your stencil with your hands or a weeding tool.
  • Then, apply the transfer tape to your design. Press the tape down well and eliminate as many air bubbles as possible.
  • Remove the vinyl liner and apply the entire thing to your towel. Burnish it down well on your towel. Then, remove your transfer tape to reveal the stencil.
  • With the stencil still in place, use a sponge or foam brush to apply the fabric ink to the towel. Allow your project to dry completely before removing the vinyl stencil.
  • Once dry, just remove your stencil to reveal the magic underneath. Be sure to iron your design to heat set it before using or washing. You can use a regular iron or the Cricut EasyPress for this. Follow all instructions on the back of your fabric ink for this step.
