Now that we are finally near water that is safe and pleasant to swim in, we needed some beach towels. The problem was that my husband absolutely hated every single design in the store and I hated how expensive they were. So I came up with the idea of making some from regular towels. He got to pick out the color and design, which made him happy and they were a lot cheaper this way so I was happy. As a bonus, our daughter can have a matching towel of her own. We got 3 regular sized bath towels (2 solid and 1 stripe) for ours and 1 of each color of hand towels for hers. I cut the striped towels in half and sewed them onto the solid towels. Unfortunately they unravel very very easily so no matter what stitch I seemed to use it wasn't enough to securely hold them together so I added the ribbon. That solved the problem and added a nice touch to the look. They end up being super long but I love it because it can completely and securely wrap around me, my husband likes it because it gives you plenty of room to lay stuff either at your feet or above your head if you are using it to lay on.

here is my towel with my daughter's folded on top

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

What a good idea!

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.

Boldly going where others have probably been.
