{How To} Summer Lovin’

Personalized Beach Towel

Schools out and the dog days of summer are here.  To keep things fun and fresh, I wanted to make a few personalized beach towels.

Personalized Beach Towel -The Sewing Loft

This project is for all levels.

Skill Level- 1 Button


  • towel
  • scrap fabric
  • double sided fusible
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors

Basic Instructions:

  1. To personalize my towel, I cut letters from my favorite font and used this simple appliqué “how to”.
  2. Trace and cut letters from fun fabric following instructions found on your double sided fusible.
  3. Position along edge of towel.  Cover with press cloth and iron/”fuse” in place.
  4. For extra strength, I added a simple straight stitch all around each letter in a contrast color.  *Note: The bobbin thread color was the same as the towel.  This hides the thread.
