Ribbon Egg Towels

I think this is the fastest I've ever gone from pinning a project on Pinterest to finishing my own copy of it...

I found this beautiful ribbon egg towel DIY tutorial, from Addicted 2 DIY by Katie, just two days ago and knew I had to make my own!

Katie has a great tutorial over at her blog; so I recommend you check it out here, if you want to make one with step-by-step directions

I already had some pretty velvet ribbon that I had just purchased from an Etsy shop and I thought it would be perfect; so I just had to go buy some towels. (I got the plain white one from Target for $3 and the other one from Walmart for $2.99.)
And since I don't have a cricut or printer, I used an Easter egg cookie cutter for the shape/size.

~Please note that if you use velvet ribbon, it can be ruined from an iron. Since that's what I was using, I had to lay the ribbon upside down, then the Heat-n-Bond, then the towel, and iron from the backside.

These towels are technically done, but I wanted to add a quick stitch around the edge of the whole egg, just to keep it all on a little better.

This is such a cute, easy, and inexpensive way to decorate for Easter! Or a great gift for someone! I'm already planning on using the same idea to make some Christmas Tree towels (but I don't want to think about winter right now...).
