I'm having guests tomorrow. So I'm panicking. I want my guest bath spruced up so I grabbed a couple of cheap, fluffy, white towels at Big Lots (about 3.00 each). A little fabric, a little time, and now they're cute!
Here's how to "get the look". Measure across the end of your towel.
Cut a 2" strip long enough for both ends plus 8" (2" to tuck under the ends and 6" for the tab to hang it with). The towel tab tutorial (say it 5 times quick) is here. If you have some pretty ribbon or twill tape you can totally by-pass this part and go straight to the glueing and stitching part.
Fold in half, press, then fold into the middle. Press again.
Cut each strip to go across the ends with about 1/2" overhang on each side. I placed mine 1.5 inches from the bottom of the towel.
Now glue the bottom side of each strip. Work quickly since this stuff dries pretty fast. If you don't have glue....get some! It makes sewing so much easier and you'll see I didn't use even one pin while making this!
Now set in place (press down with your fingers as you're going along) and tuck the ends under. Dab a little glue on the ends and set them in place.
Stitch all the way around and across the ends. Make, and attach the tab and you're done!
So fast! So cheap (I used a fabric scrap from my stash)! So cute!
