Hand Towels Make Great Gifts!

When you need a small gift for a hostess or to just say thankful for taking one of your children for a day, these hand towels make wonderful, practical gifts!

I made these yesterday with some leftover fabric from previous projects and a couple of bar mop towels that I purchased at the store.  Remember to prewash your fabrics before making them to preshrink them so they don't get out of shape when your recipient washes their hand towels for the first time.

Here is the link to the tutorial from The Creamer Chronicles that I used and found the link to the pattern for the fabric part.

I didn't use buttons on mine as I didn't have any hand that really went well with the fabric so I used Velcro instead.  I did use one layer of flannel on the inside to help give the fabric part some added shape.  Others on Pinterest have suggested interfacing to give it a little extra shape.

If you make some, I would love to see them!  I plan on making more to keep on hand for hostess gifts.
