Little Towels for Christmas Gifts

 013

  The Bunnies' been busy…. Here are some Christmas towels I have made.   The towels were purchased at the Dollar Tree.   I found the border print at Wally World.   I just love snowmen. I made many sets of same color towels but am showing both color designs.

   Because the towels have a serger kind of blanket stitch They are very easy to add a crocheted border to. When I first tried these I made the project much harder than it needed to be adding interfacing behind the border prints. It is not needed, and so much easier not to use.

The borders were cut then a trim fabric was added to each side. I kept the fabric in large rolls while the trims awaited their turn to adorn.

  I measured the towels and marked with chalk to get the right placement and sewed the seam. I made the seam a completed rectangle to cover the sides of towels also.

  I hope you enjoy this project have a great week….. with love from the Victorian Rabbit.
