How to Bind and Scallop Bathroom Accessories and Towels

Now that you have designed your Terry towels, i.e. hand-sewn them, you may want to add bindings and scallops. Before we get started, you will need to purchase an unadorned Terry towel or a towel of your choice. Preferably, you want to select a washable cloth, as well as medium-weight material. Consider taffeta, satin, or polyester.

How to create bindings and scallops:
Once you have gathered your materials, (1) use tissue paper to create the edge of your scallop. When you draw the edge of the scallop, add an odd figure in the pattern, especially odd enough to create a curve. Create a 1-inch depth, starting at the lower point and working toward the high point. Now, with your tissue in hand, fasten it to the towel using craft pins. Next, use rotary cutters or sewing scissors to trim the edges of your scallop. 

(2) Use your rotary cutters and/or scissors to carve the strip of hems and start piecing the strips, joining them so that they create your strip bind. Lengthwise, press your strip until it folds in half and on the left side. Avoid misjudging the width of your strip.

(3) Next, on the right side of your fabric, pin the strip bind. (4) Stitch a scant quarter inch starting at the raw edges. (5) In the direction of the lower border or edge, press the narrow piece. Over the fabric, fold the binding ends over to the side of your cloth. Press and fold your bind around the border/edges of your scallop and secure it with pins. Make sure that the pins insert into the trench of the seams. (6) At the trench, begin stitching in the direction of the right plane. On the left plane, baste, using the catch bind scheme.

You have completed your scallop and binding, which is the start of creating your embellished and decorative towels. Towels make great bathroom accessories since the colors will enhance your environment. Now you are ready to add bands and lace trim to your towel.

How to create bands:
To create strips, you will need another plain or unadorned towel. Again, you want to consider fabrics that you can machine wash. Polyester is good, as well as satins or taffeta. Choose medium-weight cloth. (1) Starting at the hems of your textile, reduce a strip of your towel. You want to make the width of the band three times smaller in width than the finished breadth. Next, use your rotary hedge clippers or sewing scissors and cut a one-inch strip, extending a considerable distance than your breadth. (2) Facing down to the right, put your strip on the fabric and level: Once you finish ironing the surface, avoid distorting or stretching your fabric, and press it aloft. Press so that it balances with the bandwidth. (3) On the opposite side, press it aloft: Press the borders of the strip, forcing the edges between and balancing it with the width of your finished work. At the top layers and at the raw edges, press the edge if the two do not join. (4) About half an inch, press the cloth under at the narrow piece ends of the hems.

Do not stretch your material. Fasten the strip hems with pins in the location of your choice. At the outer edges of your fabric, begin stitching and bend the narrow piece. Darn your textile on each side of your cloth, darning until you sew the ends. Next, stitch your lace and serger.
