For the towels, I saw a deal from Kohl’s on the Big One® Solid Bath Towels and I ordered 16 towels (we needed some for house too). They ended up costing $3.40 each. They were perfect for this project- not too thick but big enough to wrap around. They ARE fuzzy so they’ll need a few washes before they stop leaking fuzz on us, but I’ve found that true of a lot of towels. Any big towel will do though- just make sure that it will wrap around your torso. If you get too thick of a towel it WILL be difficult to sew so thin towels are ideal.
When I finished I looped the elastic and sewed it down. I used the elastic loop to go around the button that I sewed on after. You could use something more attractive.
Here’s my button. Again, I wrapped this around myself to test where I wanted the button.
Here’s the other completed spa wraps. I love them! I did quit embroidering names because I realized they don’t show up very well and longer names (smaller lettering) were REALLY hard to see. The pockets are GREAT.
