What you need:
- 1 regular-sized bath towel
- 1 hand towel
- ric-rac, ribbon, double bias tape, etc.
Lay out your regular-sized towel, lay half of your hand towel in the middle of the top edge, and pin the two together. Using a zig-zag stitch, sew the two pieces together with the cut edge on top.
Next, fold the hand towel that you just sewed to the big towel in half (right sides together) and sew it closed along the top edge.
Once sewn and turned right-side out, it should look like this:
Now your towel is finished (how simple was that?!?) . You can leave it as it is, or decorate it with appliques or trim it with the bias tape, ric-rac, or ribbon. This project takes literally minutes to make, but the finished product is fabulous. We originally planned to make a couple as gifts for our friend's new baby, but the boys loved them so much we had to make more for them (in fact, Maggie's son likes to wrap up in his while he watches tv)!
