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