This is a tutorial for making embellished towels.
You are going to need some terrycloth, ribbons, matching thread and the usual sewing gear (pins, fabric scissors, etc). The measurement will depend on what size towels you want. I found this remnant of terrycloth that was 50% off and was able to make four hand towels that measure 11x18.
First step is to decide the size of the towels and cut the terrycloth.
Next you are going to hem the sides that need it.
Then you will need to mark where you want the ribbon to go. I chose to put it one inch away from the bottom. I marked this with an invisible marker to make it easier to place the ribbon. Finish off the edges of ribbon.
Pin the ribbon to the terrycloth using the pen mark you made earlier and choose your stitch. I used straight stitch on two and then tried the Fagoting Stitch on the last one.
Here you can see what each stitch looks like:
