Happy October everybody! Are you ready for the crisp fall weather and everything pumpkin? It's time to introduce the October Edition of our 12 Months of Pretty Kitchen Towels series: Pretty Pumpkin!
All 12 Months of Pretty Kitchen Towels are made of plain muslin. For the basic tutorial on how to make a dish towel, see Dish Towel Tutorial - May Edition: Ribbon and Ruffles - 12 Months of Pretty Kitchen Towels.
This month we stayed with the red grosgrain ribbon trim and golden embroidery of the month name "OCTOBER". A bit of scrap brown cotton print was used for the pumpkin stem.
Admittedly, I am no artist when it comes to drawing pictures. Fortunately for me, The Nerdy Nanny was kind enough to draw a pumpkin with a fabric marker on my orange print cotton cloth.

I'm having so much fun making and sharing these pretty kitchen towels. FYI, I've been informed that they are referred to as TEA Towels by some people around the world. If you make yourself a TEA Towel or two, or a whole set with this tutorial, please tell me about it. Share some photos too if you can:)
