1/4 yard of solid-color fabric to match towel
Monogrammed linen tea towel with an embroidered hem
Matching sewing thread
3 1/2 yards of 3/8-inch-wide double-faced satin ribbon
From solid-color fabric
, cut two 6-1/2 x 7-1/2-inch rectangles. With right sides facing, sew the rectangles together with a 1/4-inch seam allowance, leaving a small opening on one edge for turning.
Clip the corners
