To make your own DIY Days of the Week Hand Towels, you’ll need 7 white hand towels, (I got mine at Target. They come in sets of 6 not 7, think of it as an opportunity to make some festive towels for the holidays.) Heat N’ Bond; and some fabric scraps from my stash.
Once I had my letters cut out I ironed them on each of my towels. *I folded my towels how I would display them to make sure that I was ironing in the right place.
My last step was to stitch down all the letters. I used my sewing machine but you could certainly hand sew them if you didn’t have access to a machine. Since I want these to be used, a lot, I stitched all over each of the letters. After all, where ever the fabric doesn’t get stitched down it will likely pop up. I want the letter edges to be securely attached so you can tell which day is which even after some washings. You could do less stitching for a shabby chic look.
DIY Days of the Week Hand Towels make a fabulous hostess or neighbor gift! Pair a set with some kitchen utensils and an apron for a more substantial gift for Christmas, a wedding, or a birthday!
