Monogramming is a great way to customize bath towels, but not everyone has access to a fancy embroidery machine. For this DIY project, an extra washcloth and a simple zigzag stitch will do the trick to make these gift-worthy towels.

Cover Raw Edges

To prevent shedding and give the monogram a clean edge, sew around perimeter of letter. Use a thread that matches monogram and set sewing machine on a zigzag stitch with a 0 stitch length. Allow machine to sew back and forth over edge of monogram, making sure all raw edges are covered. Trim loose threads. Tip: If using zigzag setting for first time, practice on an old towel or piece of fabric until satisfied with results. Terrycloth can be a challenge to work with, but using it for the monogram makes the entire towel absorbent, so it's functional and looks great.
