"Tutorial": Personalizing Towels-EASY!

Alright folks, here's the "tutorial" I promised. It's really so simple that you don't really need instructions. When I graduated I received a couple towel sets that were very generic. I wanted to be able to distinguish mine so I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out some wide ribbon that coordinated with both towel sets and sewed it on. 

What you will need:
  • Sewing machine
  • Towels
  • Ribbon
  • A good movie to watch while you sew! (This isn't essential, but it's fun)
How to: 
  1. Measure and cut the ribbon, leaving a little bit of extra length on each end. 
     2. Pin down the ribbon across the towel.
     3. After you have pinned the ribbon all the way across, fold under the extra ribbon at the ends and sew them down. 

    4. Sew either down the top of the ribbon or the bottom, you choose! You can remove the pins as you go or leave them in- whichever you are comfortable with.

    5. Sew the other side. 

And there you have it! Your own unique towels!
