Episode 9: A Trip to the Beach! How to Make a Hooded Bath Towel & Tote

May 18th, 2010

Summer weather is just about here and so the fun has already begun in getting our beach wear and gear all ready! And what a more perfect way to do that than by making a personalized hooded towel for the kids!

We’ll show you how to make a hooded towel, from start to finish… and you’ll love the ease of this sewing project. You literally can make one in just about 5 minutes! No kidding!

If you love machine embroidery, we will show you some tips and tricks for getting the best results when embroidering onto towels. If you do not own an embroidery machine, we know you’ll still be anxious to personalize your towels with sweet ric rac trims, ribbons, and even hand applique!

Not only are these towels so cute for the summer, but they make the most darling gifts for baby showers and birthdays! Once you make one, we have the feeling you’ll want to make many, many more!

And thanks to our wonderful sponsor this week, Embroidery.com, we are able to showcase the amazing line of Hemingworth products! Our personal favorite? THEIR THREAD! Whether you machine embroider, sew, quilt, or craft, the Hemingworth thread has so many advantages, you may never look at another spool again! We mention several of those advantages in our video, but if you’re interested in learning more about the Hemingworth thread line, then you’ll want to be sure to check out this link where you will find an even more detailed video outlining why Hemingworth thread is a “must-have” in your sewing room.

AND…speaking of thread, Embroidery.com and Hemingworth Products are giving away something we know you will ALL LOVE! One lucky viewer is going to win the Hemingworth Thread Caddy Drawer with 42 different spools of thread!
