Decorative Guest Towels for the Holidays

Before you go out and purchase holiday towels, you can consider making some yourself for just a fraction of the cost. All you will need is plain towels and some Christmas fabric. These are not only lovely in your restroom, but also make nice gifts for friends and family.



Christmas Craft - Sew a Designer Hand Towel

For this project you will need:

- white guest or hand towels
- decorative Christmas fabric
- sewing supplies
- iron


1. To prevent later shrinkage, wash and iron the fabric before using.

3. Cut the webbing away from the bottom of each side of the towel.

4. Once cut, it looks like this.
5. Cut a 5 cm wide strip of Christmas fabric. The width is the width of the towel plus 2 cm seam allowance.
6. Iron over 5 millimeters and then again 5 millimeters on each short side of the Christmas fabric. This will give you a nice side edge that won’t fray. Pin the fabric now to both of the towel pieces you see in step 5, and sew with a 0.75 cm or 1/4 inch seam allowance. Zig-zag stitch the seams and press flat.
