  • Fold over one side so it looks a little like this.  You can't really see, but it's folded almost to the top. You can either sew the sides and top which will make the bag a little thicker, more absorbent and sturdier, or leave the top open to create a pocket inside the bag.

  • Repeat the above step with the second hand towel.
Make a template for the Minnie Mouse head and bow, trace around it on the face washers, and then cut them out.

  • Sew both pieces onto the front of one of the hand towels. You will have some fraying so what I did was run the sewing machine around each piece twice, once along the outer edge and then approximately 5mm inside of the edge. You can also add some fray check around the edge too.

  • Next you are going to add the straps. Cut your trim in half and sew it to the outside of both hand towels. Turn your bag inside out and stitch the sides and bottom together, and then turn it the right way in.

  • Using the white fabric paint add some dots to Minnie's bow. Set aside to dry.
