Here it is and it is so simple…little or no sewing at all.
Perfect and inexpensive wall hanging to fill in those little areas around your house just crying for a little color or something Chrismassy.
So, get your towels ready...
This is one of the towels I purchased at TJMaxx for only $2.99
My original thought was to fold the hem down and sew a channel for a rod or stick to hang it from. However, folding it over took up too much of the design on the front, so I thought of a different idea.
I made four corner pockets…
I cut 4 pieces of canvas at 4 inches square. You could use any scrap fabric though. I just thought the canvas would be sturdy and hold up better.
Fold each square into a triangle and iron flat.
Zig zag the edges to sew the 2 edges together and to prevent it from fraying. You could also use iron on fusible web or glue the edges together.
Place one triangle in each corner of the towel.
I hot glued my on just on the edge.
If you do want to sew them on, pin them and then sew from the front following the original stitching of the towel's hem.
Here's what they look like.
Now you can use anything you have around the house for the "hanger" part of it.
I used an adjustable small tension rod that I could twist small or large to make it fit any size towel.
- tension rod
- wooden dowel
- cut up a yard stick or ruler
- old curtain rod section, cut to fit
I put a rod at the top and the bottom. The bottom one is to weigh the towel down and give it some structure and tension.
The stick or rod just slips in under the triangle.
Instant wall hanging.
Adds so much to any room for very little money.
Hope you like this project!!
