Day 6 of 12 Days of Last Minute DIY Gifts- FREE Video Tutorials

Day 6 is perfect if you have a lot of different gifts to make and have a massive fabric stash! You can buy the towels in bulk and crank out customized patchwork accent bands for each recipient’s towel. These are so much fun to whip up using 2.5″ squares and fusible grid interfacing. The interfacing makes it so you get perfect points at every intersection of your patchwork pieces. Easy peasy! The towels I used in this video measure 16″ x 28″. Keep in mind that if you are using a towel with a different width than the 16″ mine has you’ll need to do some math and figure out how many more squares you’ll need to ensure your accent band reaches across the width of the towel.

I used white towels. It seems they are not in stock right now in white but here they are in chocolate, charcoal and black. But they also sell the same ones in this multicolored pack for even more color!

    this gridded interfacing is fun and easy to use. I have been using it in scrap projects for a few years now. It makes some really great totes and even have used it for the center medallion in small quilts. Yes it works well with towels for a quick project. I often find great banquet table cloths at thrift shops and can usually get six to eight nice dishtowels out of one tablecloth. Add this decor idea and it is a special looking kitchen item.
