These DIY no sew monogram towels are an easy no sew craft. I created them in partnership with Step2. I am a Step2 ambassador.
Are you ready for a ridiculously easy and cute DIY to go with a play kitchen? Make my DIY no sew monogram towels in just a few minutes. They’re a pint sized personal add on to an existing play kitchen.
Or they make a great inexpensive handmade gift to go with a play kitchen or play food for the holidays.
I grabbed these iron on embroidered letters to get that embroidery look without the sewing skills or expense. The letters easily lift off the sheet and are ready to use.
I placed my letters on the towels and took a minute to adjust their alignment and make sure everything looked right.
Next I used my iron on a medium to high setting and placed it down flat on top of the letters to avoid moving them. I lifted it up after a few seconds to check that the letters had not shifted and placed it back on them for another 5 seconds or so and repeated again.
If you’re wondering if this will be a disaster if you do it because I’m a “Pinterest Mom” then the answer is no. I make pretty things but really, I only make simple projects that just about anyone can make. I don’t believe in showing you projects that take far longer to do than it would to just buy something because your time is valuable and scarce, right?
You can make these no sew monogram towels. Even if you feel like this about irons and haven’t touched one in years.
After that I simply let the towels cool, fluffed them up a bit and they were done. I made one with Blake’s initials “BW” for that monogram initials look, one with his first name spelled out and then because I had some letters left over I created one that said “home.”
The scale of the towel was perfectly suited to the Step2 Grand Luxe Kitchen. It was nice to add another texture to the play experience too. Kids are all about touching, feeling and exploring.
Blake like most toddlers also really loves cleaning so I’m sure he’ll use these towels for cleaning his kitchen, the family dog, and just about anything else you can think of. With all of the cleaning he does, you would think our house would be really clean. But then he likes to randomly chuck toys all around. So I guess there is that.
If you’re curious about the Step2 Grand Luxe Kitchen then let me show you some of the features. For starters, it’s BIG. Big enough that 2-3 children can play at the same time. The Grand Luxe kitchen comes with a blender and a popcorn popper that make different sounds. The popcorn will start popping, sending the little foam balls into the air. The Blender will start whirling and swirl the balls around.
This is definitely some new technology for Step2 and I love it. My only wish would have been to add more detail to what’s inside the popper or blender though. We have a toy kitchen at Grandma’s house which is quite a few years old and it has a very similar feature but pretty authentic looking pieces of popcorn inside.
That small detail aside, the kitchen is seriously impressive. That range? I mean it reminds me of a Viking or Dacor range. And the red knobs bring it to life. Whoever came up with the color palette for the Grand Luxe Kitchen did an awesome job. I never would have thought to combine the colors they did, but they look amazing together.
If you like decals, there are plenty included which offer stone and tile features. I’ve never been a fan of decals so I leave mine off, but you can see what the Grand Luxe Kitchen looks like with the decals right here.
Adding the copper look utensils and pans just makes this kitchen feel so real and like a miniature version of something out of a Williams Sonoma catalog.
The sink is a farmhouse sink with a nice big white apron and the faucet is so detailed. It reminds me of a fancy Grohe pull down faucet. Which I would love in my actual kitchen. My initial reaction to this kitchen was that I wanted it dropped in my home, adult size please. Thank you very much.
And yes, that is a coffee pot with coffee, cocoa and tea pods to use in it. Blake served me up quite a few cups of coffee the other day and it was lovely. When he is able to replicate this with an actual coffee maker I’ll know my work is done here. The Step2 Grand Luxe Kitchen is a Toys ‘R Us exclusive. You can grab your own here.
And of course the other Step2 ambassadors have cooked up some adorable projects of their own. My friend Christie made these super cute no sew tea bags, which I may just have to attempt. Have kids that love play-dough? Then Vanessa’s printable is great to print, laminate and let them make you dinner!
