No pool party is complete without a fun beach towel!

This PDF download includes pattern pieces and step-by-step photo instructions for creating an appliqued terry cloth beach towel in your choice of four designs - popsicle, flamingo, beach scene and "atta girl!". Also included are three different finishing options, including an easy finish, a self-edged option or a bias tape-edged version.

Also included in this pattern is a time-saving method for cutting out your applique pieces, as well as step-by-step photo instructions for using the satin stitch method of machine applique.

Cute pattern

This pattern was easy to follow and a perfect accessory to the pool party gift set I made for my nieces. I'm a confident beginner and was able to customize and complete in no time.

Fun Project

This was my first project ever with applique and satin stitching. In addition to the instructions, I had to depend a little bit on the Heat n Bond package to guide me. My flamingo is a mirror image somehow, but it's not a disaster as it would've been if I had chosen to do the Atta Girl towel! heehee. Also, in addition to the instructions on satin stitching, which were very clear, I watched an online video for tips and I am very pleased with myself. I think my g daughter and her dollies will be tickled pink! Thank you for providing this fun pattern.

Super fun...many possibilities

I had the privilege of testing this pattern. It was very, very, fun to practice my satin stitching. Easy pattern, great directions. The only thing I think is important for you to know is definitely use the stabilizer like Kristin recommends. My terry was thin, and it made the satin stitching look so very nice. I do not think I will applique with out stabilizer ever again! This is a must-try pattern for sure!
