Another Bridesmaids' Gift

Hey guys!
I'm in and out a lot lately, so I haven't been to regular around here.  Just thought I'd pop in really quick and show you one of my latest projects.

I ordered 6 lime green towels from Kmart and paid just over $20 for the 6 and shipping.  I turned 5 of them into wraps for the girls to wear the morning that we all get ready.  I don't know what they're going to think, but I'm in love with them.   Personally, I stay wrapped in a towel after I get out of the shower while I'm doing my hair and makeup.  It will be nice to have one of these that stay velcroed on.
Sorry about the crappy photo quality!! I used my webcam because I left my computer cord in MN.

These have elastic in the back and about 5" of velcro at the front.  A cute black and white polka dot grosgrain ribbon runs down the front.  I sat down the other day and whipped all five of these out in about an hour.  It was a fun, quick little project.  I'm contemplating embroidering initials on the front, but I'm not entirely sure! 
The sixth towel I'm going to try and turn into a hooded wrap for my little flower girl.

On a side note, these girls are beginning to get a little spoiled!!

  1. I got towel wraps for my girls too! I bought some on sale & I'm having my grandma put their initials on them. They will be super cute for getting ready pictures! I wear one every day while getting ready too!
