I bought a plain white terry hand towel at Wally World in early December with all intentions to add some cute ribbon that matched all my other Christmas decorations. But when we returned from winter break guess what?!? My Thanksgiving hand towel was STILL hanging in the guest bathroom, woops! So I thought I would put that white hand towel to good use and make it into a Valentine’s day towel. It’s really easy to do, you don’t have to sew if you aren’t inclined to do so, just use double sided hem tape (or stitch witch or whatever you call it) or fabric glue. I wanted to make sure this baby was washable so I sewed my ribbons on (using a little fabric glue to keep them in place while I sewed so I didn’t have to pin or iron on a little hem tape). Basically 3 steps to this project.
- pick out what ribbons and/or trim you want to use and cut them to size
- arrange your ribbons/trim (if you are going to sew them, pin them in place or use a little fabric glue)
- attach your ribbons by either sewing, gluing, or heat bonding.
That’s it!! Stock up on the multi-packs of white hand towels next time you see them on sale so you can make one for each holiday!
