A $4 Pool Towel Tutorial is what we have to share with you today!
I know….it’s December 31st…but in our family we spend every New Years Eve at a different hotel swimming, playing board games, setting goals, and eating treats. So, tonight, even though it’s freezing outside, we will be making use of these pool towels that I made over the summer. With that said…let’s get started!
I love projects that both come together quickly and are great to use and this pool towel is both of those things!
This really is such a simple project that it will only take you 30 minutes to complete from start to finish. And once pool season is over it will still get used as a favorite bath towel. Let’s get started.
All you need to make this pool towel is:
*4 Hand towels (I got mine from the dollar section in a big box store….but you can also get them at a Dollar Store as well.) Just make sure they are 4 of the same kind of towels..so they are all the same size!
*Thread, Sewing Machine, Scissors
Once you have your supplies lay your 4 towels out in the order that you like best.
Lay them horizontally just overlapping the finished edges.
Then stitch together with your sewing machine. (Remembering to take out the pins as you sew!)
Repeat these steps for every towel stripe (lay them out, pin, then stitch). Easy peasy!
And you are done!
That’s it, for real! And within 30 minutes you are ready for one last summer hurrah at the pool…the splash pad…or in the sprinklers!
(And if you had fun making this towel and want to try another similar project you can try your hand at this super simple DIY serger style beach towel! We made some of these last year and the kids love them!)
It was made used only a package of washcloths and sews together almost as quickly as the hand towel one does. (And the kids had so much fun picking them out and deciding how they should be laid out.)
