The whole project took about 45 minutes, but only because it was my first time to try it. It was so easy and so fun!
Basically, I folded the dish towel in half and sewed the open ends together leaving an opening on either side for the ribbon ties. TThen, I turned it inside out and pulled the ribbon through. After that, I sewed across the ribbon and closed the openings. To make the pockets, I did the same thing with a smaller piece of fabric, but added some pretty trim. I sewed it on to the towel leaving the folded side open and at the top. Lastly, I stitched down the middle to make the pockets.
