I love to personalize things. In this post I will show you how I personalized the hooded baby towel that I made here. I put the baby's first initial on the bottom corner of the towel.
Choose your fabric. Decide how big you want the letter or shape to be and cut out a square of fabric just bigger than you want your letter or shape to be. Cut out a square of fusible interfacing (I used Heat n Bond Lite) the same size as your fabric square and iron it to the back of your fabric. I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the baby's first initial, but this can easily be done by hand also. If you are doing it by hand, I would cut the shape out of paper first and then use that as a pattern to cut the fabric.
Iron the shape onto the towel where you want it. I put it in the bottom corner, but it would be cute on the hood or on the back too!
Stitch around the edge of the shape, there is no need to pin it on if you used interfacing. I kept my stitching in from the edge just a little so the edges will curl and fray a little when it is washed. I really like the way that looks.
