My kiddos think these are pretty CoOL! I think they will get used a-lot this summer. They even love to lay them all out... in the house... and sit on them when they are watching TV.
These were fun to make! The towels I bought at Walmart (last year) for only $3. For these...I just traced some card stock letters (that I printed from my computer and cut out with an exact-o knife) onto some scrap fabric ...cut them out...and used fabric glue and StUcK them on the towel . Then I zig-zag stitched around the edge of each letter. If you don't like the frayed edge on the letters after you wash the towel...you could try using "Fray Check". I like the frayed look. Although... I did still have to trim some of the threads a bit after the first washing.
If you feel really CrEaTiVe...you could add flowers, or a dinosaur, or whatever your child would like!
I need to make some more of these... for when they take their baths so they don't use a new towel every time...which means" LeSS LaUnDrY "for me!! Yea!!
These would also make really cute Birthday or Christmas Gifts!! Have FuN!!
