I know it's getting a little late, but you can do this in about 20 minutes!
Here's what you need:
flour sack dishtowels (I got mine at Target 4 for about 3.99)
about 1/4 yd. of a cute material (had this on hand)
1/2 yd. large size ric rack (I had this on hand)
Iron edges all the way around. I also pinned it, so it to make sure it stayed while I was sewing. I am NOT an experienced seamstress, so anything to make it easier!
Here is what the material looks like after it's ironed.
Now, sew the material to the towel. I used a zigzag stitch. I love the way it looks! Make sure there is no raw seams showing.
I forgot to take a picture of sewing the ric rack on! Sorry. Just sew it on using a straight stitch. There it is! Simple, but PRETTY!
I think my MOM and MIL will love these:)
I may have to make some for myself as well!!
