How to Pretty up your Bathroom Towel**TUTORIAL**

Looking for a way to pretty up your bathroom?  I made this cute towel to go into my staycation package for my swap partner.  She really likes damask so I thought I would make a towel to match a picture I saw on her blog.  I hope she likes it.  I now want to make some for our bathroom.  I just have to come up with a theme for our bathroom first.  These would make cute wedding shower gifts.

What you need:
A Bathroom Towel (any size this will also work with washclothes)
Sewing Machine
Sewing pins

Step one:  The ribbon I chose had wire in it so I had to take it out.  If yours has wire remove it. 
Just a picture of the towel I chose
Step 2:
Pin your ribbon to the band at each end of your towel.  I only did this on one side of the towel.  If you flip it over it won't a ribbon on it.  I didn't want my thread to show and I didn't know how to match it up perfectly so it would look good.  
Step 3:
Sewing along the edge of the ribbon, sew your ribbon to your towel. I used black thread so it wouldn't show on the under side.  I made sure to sew on the outer edge where the ribbon had black stitching so you wouldn't see my thread.
Step 4:
 Remove the pins and VIOLA! Isn't it cute?  I love it. 
Here is a glimpse of her Spa Package.   
I made a matching Do Not Disturb Sign to match the towel. I am jealous that I didn't make two of each for myself.
