~Hand towel tote tutorial!~
I got my inspiration for this project from Martha (yes, Stewart - but I feel like her and I know each other on a first name basis!)
I tweeked mine a bit. Here are the original ones that were on her website:
Here's the before and after:
Okay now on with the tutorial!!
What you need:
used or new hand towel
15 minutes - no, I'm not kidding!
1. Take your hand towel off of your rod and wash it!
This towel came already with these darling ruffles on it! Don't you love them?
If you don't have a towel you want to use from home, buy them super-cheap at Ross or T.J.Maxx
2. Fold in half inside out and sew about 1/2 in. seam
3. Turn right side out
4. Now get your bamboo handles
5. Place your handles on the inner part of your purse and fold the ends in over them. Make sure to eye the handles to the center of the top of the bag. Pin.
I hand-sewed the handles on since I am still a beginner sewer and all!
And you're done!
I added flowers to mine, but it looks cute without too.
I just took my little girls old washcloth and cut into circles, then layered them on top of each other for the flowers!!
