Need a cute summery gift?
I think this towel is cute enough to stand on its own...or pair it up with some cute flip-flops...or a sand pail with fun summer accessories.
Here is what you need:
A beach towel (this one is from Target for $6)
One strip of fabric that is 1 1/2in by the # of inches your towel is wide + one.
One strip of fabric that is 9in by the #of inches that your towel is wide + one.
First, fold in and sew down a 1/2in seam (on the 1 1/2in and 9in sides).
Fold strips of fabrics length wise...line up the lengthwise raw edges and sew them together using a 1/4in seam. You can iron...if you must.
This is another angle...so you can see what I am talking about a little better. :)
This is what you will end up with...
Line your fabric strips up with the end of your towel...use the hem on the end of the towel to line it up...you want to have the small fabric strip sandwiched in between the big on and the towel...sew down using a 1/4 in seam.
Another angle of the same step...
Then flip the fabric strips down...crease with fingers and sew down...using about 1/4in seam.
And just one more...sew all the way across. And you're done!
Your towel will officially be the first one stolen from the poolside.
