You can make one or many of these fancy and ridiculously easy towels to give as a gift or to keep for yourself.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
- fingertip/hand towel(s)
- trimming, to match the towel
- thread, to match trimming
- sewing pins
- optional: thimble
- Measure the trimming against the width of the towel and cut. Measure and cut as many strips as the number of towels you're making.
- Pin the trimming to the bottom third of the towel, there's usually a strip where it's not furry, cover that with the trimming. It's fine if it doesn't cover completely.
- Sew the trimming to the towel in the simple in and out sewing technique.
- If you're presenting a few towels as a gift, fold each towel in half, roll, place in a basket, and wrap.
A gorgeous gift that looks like a million bucks!

A friend of ours just recently remodeled his bathroom. He said that the whole job will cost him approximately $1,000. By doing the job himself, he saved himself a lot of money. So as an added bonus I'm giving them a gift of two sets of towels to hang in their new bathroom. I always include two washcloths in a set since the washcloth is the first to wear out.

Yo-Yo Christmas tree applied to finger towels using the Clover small round template. I used these for Christmas gifts this past year and received many compliments.
