|Thanksgiving Guest Towels|
A strip of fabric was cut to fit into towel's recessed area near the bottom edge. The strip is 2" longer than the towel's width. That way I have an extra 1" on each side to play with when doing the finishing work and sewing.
The height of the desired strip is measured 1/2" larger than needed, so both the top and the bottom may be turned in 1/4" and pressed. The raw edges on each side of the strip are turned in also, pressed and then turned in again and sewn in place.
When sewing strip in place: I like to wrap a very small portion of the colorful strip around the backside of the towel when attaching, so I allow for an extra 1/2" on each side. Pin the strip onto the plain portion of the towel's front and sew in place. Really easy!
