Easy to Hang Up Towels

This project has been on my list for way too long and yet it only took 5 seconds to finish.  The boys have a hard time getting their towels to hang on the hook after their showers.  They always kind of slide off onto the floor or sometimes they don't even make it to the bathroom.  Now there's no excuse.

So I took some ribbon, cut it to be about 8 inches long, and melted the ends of it so it wouldn't fray.

Then I stitched it in a loop onto the towel.  I even took the time to put orange thread on my bobbin and navy thread on top.  (I got a little excited about the project I guess.)  I placed the loop in the middle of the long side so the towel wouldn't drag on the floor.

And now I hope to never see a wet towel on the carpet again.  The end.

I'm almost done staining and finishing that coffee table I gave you a sneak peak of.  Can't wait to show you it all done!  Thanks for dropping in.

So simple yet so brilliant.

I've done this and it's the best. All towels should come with loops!

I've done something similar, but no sew - I use the curtain rings with the clips (the ring part slides onto the rod and the clips attaches to the curtain) to clip to the towels and slide the ring over the hook. Easy, peasy!

That's amazing!!!! Some tags on towels are looped, but to place the ribbon in the middle of the towel so they won't drag is so smart! This is a great way to encourage little ones to take ownership of simple tasks that work! Cannot wait to do this with my kids and their towels!!! Thanks for sharing!

Goodness. So smart! This is one of those, "why didn't I think of that" posts. I always tell my kids to hang up their towels but this would seriously make it so much easier!
