I have a friend who is afraid of her sewing machine. Which works for me because she also owns a Cricut and vinyl. I sewed a project she wanted for her kids and she's going to cut me a vinyl phrase. I hope she knows what's she's getting into because my phrase is going to be about 30" long.
I hope these towels are worth it for her:
I started with a print out of the CTR shield from lds.org. I tried to find a link for you, but was unsuccessful. I'm sure it's there somewhere. This is super easy to do with any design, however. You could do a monogram for a child or newlyweds, too.
I traced the image onto a piece of paper backed sewing adhesive. You could probably print directly onto the paper, but my printer was acting up. Just make sure you print your design mirrored.
Next iron the design onto the back side of your fabric and cut the design out.
I saved my scraps with the paper backing still on when cutting out. I ironed down the big shield shape first then I used the scraps to make sure I got the letters placed exactly where they belonged. They did slip slightly though when I was iroring them down. Working with towels is a bit difficult.
Here's the design fully fused to the fabric. It's ready to sew.
And here it is all sewn down. You can see my threads still because I'm tying them off instead of just cutting.
