When it comes to Fall I am incredibly and unapologetically basic. I live for boots, sweaters, leggings and caramel lattes (no pumpkin spice for this girl!). It’s always been my favorite time of the year, especially if it means my two favorite holidays are right around the corner: Thanksgiving and Christmas.

My favorite part about owning our own home has been hosting family and friends. I love to cook for others and there is nothing better than having my home full of laughter and love. And that was the inspiration for this free svg file!

For this months free file I designed this Gather and Give Thanks SVG, which is perfect for wall decor, tea towels or a table runner! And if we’re being honest, this would go perfectly with the Thanksgiving side of my reversible sign that is currently hanging in my kitchen.

The best part about this file is that you can break it apart and use different elements for different parts of your holiday decor. Wouldn’t the pumpkin look so cute on place cards, pot holders, invitations and more?

Supplies to make a Thanksgiving tea towel

To make your own Gather and Give Thanks tea towel you’ll need a cutting machine (Silhouette Cameo is what I use), heat transfer vinyl, weeding tools, Cricut EasyPress, pressing pillow, teflon sheet, and a flour sack towel.

How do you open the file in your cutting machine software?

Download the type of file that works best with your machine. Then click FILE >OPEN and select the file you want to open up in your software.

If you are using the Silhouette Software you might have to trace your image in order to use it. The Business Edition of the software lets you open up SVG’S and cut them immediately without tracing. If you do not have the business edition you will need to trace the image.

What vinyl should you use on flour sacks?

Heat transfer vinyl is the best type of vinyl to use on flour sacks. I love Siser Easyweed because (true to it’s name) it is incredibly easy to weed! It’s also very easy to cut.

You do not want to use adhesive vinyl on a flour sack because it won’t hold up well and you cannot wash it.

Should you use a Heat press or Iron?

Either works for this project but I personally prefer my Cricut EasyPress over an iron. And iron has holes in the bottom for steam which means you will not get an even press with it. You’ll have to move the iron all around in order to make sure every piece of your heat transfer vinyl has stuck to the flour sack.

Since the Cricut EasyPress has a solid iron on the bottom (with no holes) you will get an even press every time.

Materials

Instructions

Sign up to grab the Gather and Give Thanks svg file!

  1. Open the file in your software. If you do not have the Business Edition of the Silhouette Software you will need to trace the image. (SEE NOTE #1)
  2. Make sure you FLIP HORIZONTAL your image before cutting. Then hit cut.
  3. Use your weeding tools and weed out all the small parts of the design. While you're doing this heat up your Cricut EasyPress or iron.
  4. Unfold your flour sack and iron it out with your EasyPress. Then fold it in half and iron the crease. This will help you find the center of the towel so that your vinyl decal will be straight when you press it on.
  5. Put a pressing pillow underneath your flour sack.
  6. Lay your vinyl design on the flour sack, place a teflon sheet on top, and then press with your EasyPress for 30 seconds.
  7. Remove the teflon sheet and carrier sheet from the vinyl. Go slowly to make sure your vinyl is stuck to the flour sack. If it isn't, lay the carrier sheet and teflon sheet back down on the vinyl and press for another 10 seconds. Continue to do this until the entire decal is stuck to your flour sack.
  8. Hang it on the door of your oven for your Thanksgiving feast!

Notes

1. The Business Edition of the Silhouette Software allows you to open SVG files in the program and cut them without tracing first.
