Bath Towels with Patterned Trim


A patterned trim can tie together almost any assortment of colored towels.


  • Scissors
  • 2-inch bias-tape maker
  • Towel
  • Fabric
  • Iron


  1. Step 1

  2. Step 2

    Using scissors or shears, cut two 8-inch-wide strips of fabric on the bias that span the width of the towel, allowing 1/2 inch on each end for finishing. Fold raw edges of fabric so they meet in the center back, and press with an iron to create single-fold bias tape. Fold in half lengthwise again, and press. Continue as with hand towel.
