Cotton Fingertip Towels Tutorial

Fingertip Towels are the best.  They are a little smaller than a regular hand towel , but larger than a wash cloth.

And, because you are binding the terry cloth fabric center they are great to customize.  No more plain colors or weird patterns.  It goes perfect for what you need in your bathroom.

Materials Needed:

12″ X 18″  terry cloth
