Towel Wraps and Covered Soap...

I had to think very hard about what I could make and show...
All I make these days are baby beds and pouches and it is becoming a bit monotonous.
I haven't made these towel wraps in a long time, so here are a few.

Nice and simple, no frills this time.
I bought he main fabric a few years ago in France.

They are very easy to make.
 The fabric I used is a kind of upholstery material,
quite thick so I didn't have to line it.
If you use lighter material then you need to line it.

I hemmed the edge to the front and zig-zagged it, so the back looks tidy,
then I stitched  nice lace all around it and finished with Velcro closing.

I wrapped it around four small towels
and use them in the guest bathroom.

Here I show how to cover hand-soap,
yes, I cover them!

I hope you have a lovely weekend,

  2. I have never heard of a towel wrap, but I love it. I never tire of your blog!


  3. You are so talented with the lace, and those wraps for the soaps and towels are precious. What an elegant look!

  4. I've never seen such towel wraps before but that's such a wonderful idea and they look beautiful. That applies for the covered soap as well. I guess I love everything that is covered with lace :-).
    Have a great day!
    Hugs to you,

  5. Hello Angela, thanks for visiting my blog, and I love everything you have here, it looks so romantic, you are very talented.

  6. If I ever have a B&B, which we talk about all the time, I must remember to make towel wraps and soap covers. I bet we would get a 5 star rating with that kind of extra touch. :) So glad you stopped by. Have a wonderful weekend. ~ Lynn @thevintagnest

  7. Angela lace adorns the threads of time, pale and delicate, soft as wings but strong on the weave of life, my friend, you've been given the Spirit of Creativity and you honor it well. Blessings Terri
