I know. Another geometric round towel. AGAIN with this grid fabric = geometric round towel
And I like it even better than last year’s watermelon towel because this one has a real towel side. So you can dry yourself off with one side and then sit on the relatively dry other side.
Totally inspired by the towels by sandy nomad here’s how to make your own:
This DIY round towel is a perfect beginners sewing project!
- 1,5 meters of white towel fabric
- 50 cm of black cotton (I used this thick cotton but it would be better to use a thinner fabric like the other fabrics I used)
- 50 cm of pattern cotton
- 40 cm of mustard cotton
- 80 cm of grid fabric
- 5m of pink fringe
1- Like for the watermelon towel, tie a piece of chalk (or a pen) to a string to make yourself a compas. Trace a circle with about a 1,5 meter diameter.
2- To make sure it’s nice and equal, fold in four and cut to equalize if necessary.
3-Place your pieces of coton and move them around until you’re satisfied with pattern you’ve created. Since my fabric was is kind of “bands” I didn’t have a 1000 options. To get more creative order a bit more fabric!
4- Once you’ve decided on your pattern, make simple stitches and cut the excess fabric.
5- You’ll get something like this
6- Place your grid fabric right sides together with the previous “patchowork” and sew along the edge.
7- You’ll get something like this
8- Take your towel circle and place it right sides together with the previously assembled piece. Insert the fringe in between (with the fringes point inwards)
9 – Pin everything in place and cut the excess fabric. Sew along the adge leaving a 20 cm opening somewhere (where it isn’t too noticeable)
10 – Flip your towel outside in and close up the opening!
That’s it! Now just need to find a beach!!
p.s. the swimsuit is also DIY (over here)
p.p.s. I also used the grid fabric to make bedding!
