Towel Wraps

Aren't these the cutest things ever?

I saw them over at Sassy Sanctuary and knew immediately that I needed these . . . because . . .

. . . my towels are never where I need them to be!!!  I need them to be hanging from my stove.  And of course it's not me that moves them!

I'm not showing too much on how to make these because Krystal at Sassy Sanctuary gives such a great tutorial with measurements and everything, that I really don't need to!!!  (That and the fact that I was so excited to make them that I forgot to take many pictures!)

Basically you're sewing a tube and putting velcro on the ends.  I wasn't too careful about how I sewed my velcro because it's on the back and no one sees it anyway!  One piece is on the inside and one is on the outside so it wraps around and sticks nicely.
I love this blue plaid fabric!  It speaks to the "country" in me!

I made two for variety, but I can see that I just might need to make some for all the holidays!!!

This one used the rows that I took off from my table runner because I sewed them smaller and the squares didn't match up.  (You can read about that here.)  So now my towel and my table runner will match, as well as cushions in the great room!

The cute little button was the perfect finishing touch for this wrap.

And there they both are - love them!  Can't wait to see if they'll do their job and keep the towel in one place!!!  And obviously I'll only have one out at a time!
There are my towels - I just bought plain bathroom hand towels.  And now the towels and wraps are packed away, waiting for their new place of honour on the stove we purchased last weekend, that will be in the house that we'll be moving into at the end of July (well, we might be living in the camper for awhile!).  And that will be a new adventure!!!
