Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns and Crafts. Today, I'm going to show you how to do a simple Christmas face towel for your bath. Or even to make for gifts. You'll need a basic face towel. Two 18 inch pieces of double lace. Two 12 inch pieces of red and green or other color grosgrain ribbon. And and 18 inch piece of grosgrain ribbon that will go down the center of the lace. Fusible web which is glue on a paper backing. An iron, needle and thread. You cut a thin piece of the fusible web and then simply press it down on the wrong side of the lace. Iron the glue down onto the heading, header of the lace and let it cool down. And then peel the paper backing and it leaves the glue on the lace. Iron your lace onto the bottom of one side of the towel. Lay the lace with the fusible web on it down on top of one end of your towel. And fuse those down in just a second. And then gently press, press the grosgrain ribbon down the center. And take needle and thread and just gather the edge, the casing edge of the lace and gather it up into a circle. Stitch the button down in the center. Just roughly fold your towel into thirds. And then the lace rosette would go about here. The other two rosettes are made out of the other pieces of double face, or of grosgrain ribbon. And you just use a long running stitch. Tack the edges and then stitch a bead. Put your two rosettes alongside the lace. And that's how you can decorate a simple face towel for Christmas. You can find the pattern for this project and others at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
