Take hand towel and fold under one side edge. Sew down. Now cut the hand towel 9" from the folded hem.
How to: Need nice quality bath towel and preshrunk cotton fabric. I measured the width of towel and added a couple of inches. Lay fabric right side down on back side of fabric with the edge meeting the edge of the towel. Then pin folding over the side edges to match the side edge of the towel. Sew fabric on back side of towel about 2-3" from edge. Then fold fabric over the edge to the other side. Tuck under the the fabric and pin. Sew along top. Be sure to use coordinating thread to sew, but in the bobbin use thread that matches the color of the towel. Now if desired, applique an initial or design. I won't go through the how to on applique, but if you don't know how I'm sure if you google you can find instructions on how to properly applique. :) I gave these towels as a wedding gift.
Kids Hand-Drying Towel
How to: Use hand towel or generous sized washcloth (as pictured). Attach large grommet to corner. Use ribbon, binder clips or linked key chain to hang it on knob or towel bar. Hopefully this will be the last time you will find the good/for 'company' towels on the floor or toothpaste goop on them. ;) Ours hangs on the center set of cabinet drawers in the 'kids' bathroom for tall and small to reach. Works like magic (ie no nice pretty red 'for show only' towels thrown on floor and I have 2 for when I need to switch out a clean for the toothpaste gooped one).
