DIY Towel Wrap


I recently participated in the pattern remix at Me Sew Crazy
In case you missed it here was my project.
 We were asked to do a "pattern remix" of any pattern. 
  I found mine at @ Sew4Home
Its a super cute towel wrap.
I actually got to kill 2 birds with one stone on this project. 
 I needed a graduation gift for my cousin, and a great
blog project.

Here is what you need.
1 yard of terry cloth
16-20 in. of non-roll elastic
velcro
scrap fabric

The original post used 8" binding. 
It also had a pocket and shoulder straps. 
Here is the pattern pic that I based mine off of.

I used a ruffle instead of binding and no shoulder strap.

You start by placing the elastic in the back so you get a snug fit.
See the original post HERE for directions. 
The only thing I modified was that I serged the edge of my towel
and only folded over once.  I didn't want the thickness of a double fold.
I then made my ruffle that I used instead of the binding.

 
I used a strip that was 88 in. by 2.5.  I folded in half and sewed
with a basting stitch so that I could gather for my ruffle.
I pinned and sewed in place.

I repeated with terry cloth for the bottom edge.

I also added velco on the top like in the original post.  See pictured below.

I added a monogram. I used my embroidery machine, but you could easily use a
silhoutte or print a letter from your computer and applique.

  2. Amy & Emily,
    So happy to have just discovered your blog...it's wonderful. Love all the DIY ideas. What first caught my eye was the name of your blog. I have a "sisters" blog too and just finished decorating my little Casita camper in a "wild west" theme...birds of a feather! Just became a Follower, joined your link party,and happily added your blog to my sidebar.
    Hugs,

  3. This is so cute. It turned out great. I have been wanting to try this spa towel/towel wrap but just haven't gotten around to it.Maybe I will make one for my niece that will be leaving for college soon. She can wrap around herself after her shower while putting on her makeup.

  21. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  28. I seldom leave a response, however I read a great deal of remarks on this page "DIY Towel Wrap".
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be simply me or do a few of the responses appear like
    they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P
    And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I'd like to follow you. Could you list of all of all your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
