Christmas Towel Toppers (Hangers)

Towels with embroidered toppers can make a beautiful gift, or add a delightful holiday touch to your kitchen or bathroom. Best of all, this project will take you no longer than an hour. This project uses the designs Mr. and Mrs. Santa.

Step One: Hoop white or light cream polyester felt with a layer of cut-away stablizer. Embroider the design.

Step Two: Take the embroidery out of the hoop. With a thin graphic pencil, or disappering fabric marker, draw an outline 1/2" from the edge of embroidery. Leave 2"-3" under the bottom edge of the embroidery.

Step Three: Cut away the excess fabric along the marked lines. Place the embroidered part onto another piece of felt and use it as a template to cut out an identically shaped piece. This will be the backing of the project. We made it out of white felt as well, but you can use absolutely any color.

Step Four: Cut a piece of Velcro tape slightly smaller than the length of the lower line of the embroidery. Open the tape and stitch one part to the back of the embroidered piece. Stitch along the lower edge of the embroidery about 1/4" from it.

Step Five: Turn the embroidered part face up. Stitch a piece of lace onto it.

Step Six: Cover the embroidered piece with the back. Stitch both layers together, about 1/4" from the edge.

Step Seven: Turn the piece out. Fill it with stuffing.

Step Eight: Topstitch along the lower edge of the embroidery.

Step Nine: Make pleats on the towel and pin them with pins. The pleated edge of the towel should be as long as the second piece of Velcro.
Topstitch the Velcro tape to the pleated edge of the towel.

Step Ten: Stick the towel to the topper using the Velcro.

Here are some more pictures of the project.

Happy Embroidering!
