Supplies:

  • washcloth
  • sewing machine
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • ribbon
  • pins
  • lighter, optional
  • decorative items (buttons, lace, etc.), optional

Steps:

  1. Cut a piece of ribbon, 24 inches long. Use a lighter to carefully melt the ends, to prevent fraying. Fold the washcloth in half, pinning the long side together. As you are pinning, insert the folded piece of ribbon into the seam, as shown below. (The long ends of the ribbon will be on the inside, at this point.)
