Here's a fun fast gift for your friends…

French towel 2

Decorative towels for your guest bathroom!

Here's how you make them (in 20 minutes!!):

French towel 3

Measure your towel across where you are going to put your decorative fabric.

Add an inch to your measurement. Mine was 16" so I cut my deco fabric 17" long and 4.5" width.

Iron a hem on the long sides first – 1/4" hem. Then iron your sides with a 1/2" hem.

French towel 5

Pin, pin, pin your deco fabric right where you want it on your towel.

French towel 7

Using a zigzag stitch, sew all around your deco fabric.

French towel 8

Once you've sewn all around, your towel is done!
