So we’ve moved onto working in the girls’s bathroom again.
We did some fun new wall treatments yesterday! I’m so excited to show you guys… but first… I have to paint. blahh. Story of my liiiife…
A couple weeks back I was at Walmart and they had these plain white towels on sale for $2.00 each.
So I took a friends lead and decided to make some cute ribbon towels for the bathroom.
For someone who doesn’t sew… these were Seeeew easy!
I’m sure that Miss Shey B and V and Co. would be snorting with laughter right about now, at this tutorial that I’m about to throw down, but I’ll be really honest… for a girl that just barely learned how to TURN ON the sewing machine about 3 months ago… even the SIMPLEST tutorials are a MUST… when it comes to sewing, anyway. 🙂
Sew here’s to all the Simple Singer ladies… wa-uh, uh, oh, oh, uh-oh, ho-oh…
Lay ribbon down on the rib of the towel
Sew down each side of the ribbon… no pinning necessary!
tuck the end of the ribbon under the other side of the towel, and run a stitch along the edge… so you have a finished look like this.
Take a washcloth the same color as your towel.
Cut about a one inch piece along the already finished edge.
Fold over a small piece and sew down the unfinished edge. To make a finished seam.
Mine was long enough for two towels. So I cut it in half.
Before you sew on the loop, make sure it can fit over your hook/fixture that you’ll be hanging it on.
Pin and sew.
A hanging, slightly pimped out, girly, ribbon towel!
Please ignore the floating towel fixture. lol.
I’ll show you the completed wall that this will be hanging on, soon!
* Make sure you sew the ribbon on the RIGHT side of the towel.
ya… I totally sewed the whole first towel on the wrong side… ugh.
Luckily it’s just a pretty boring plain white towel… and once I cut the tag off.. hee hee.. you couldn’t even tell!
* Buy your ribbon by the YARD. If going to Walmart at least.
I was going to buy 2 rolls of ribbon, for $2.93 each, and then saw that if I bought it by the yard, I could get my 5 yards for only $2.36!
