stripe sight Your wild child wants
stripes, so hook her up with embellishments cut from
sheets of zebra print iron-on fabric. We used the handy
stuff to accent the straps and to create a sweet little
pocket. Tip: We’ve got a trick for adding dimension to
your towel wrap. Try stacking up appliqués—we did it
with basic pink flowers and ornate pearls.
adora-bow This razzle-dazzle
bow can be sewn or glued to our fabulous spa
accessories. It adds dimension and glam on its
own, but it looks especially nice paired with a
fancy appliqué. The eye-popping “cutie” iron-on
is embroidered with silver metallic thread.
by name
Use sheets of iron-on
fabric to create custom monograms! Try stencils,
sold in the Craft Department, for the font. Or if
you’re inclined, trace around our existing iron-on
letters—that’s a great trick for when you want
consistent lettering in a variety of prints.

posh petals Soft felt flowers
make a stylish, but comfortable, statement on
a simple towel wrap. Choose embellishments
carefully when it comes to portions of the wrap
that will come in contact with skin—say, under
the arms. To keep the garment functional, it’s
best to avoid anything bulky or scratchy.

You’ll rock that terrycloth (just
like everything else in your closet)

shown here.

Her name should be in lights, but
for now she’ll settle for seeing it on
a fluffy towel wrap. These iron-on
monograms come in colorful threepacks, and that makes them great
for mix and match accessories. We
used them to create an adorable
coordinating cosmetic bag too.
» some fun
If you don’t see your vision on the
shelf, think about creating your
very own embellishments—they
don’t have to be complicated. For
this look, we cut triangles of fabric
to serve as mini pennants. We
ironed simple embroidered letters
to the flags before gluing them
onto a cosmetic bag as shown.

fabric. Stitch around the design, and add
textural detail with strategically placed
French knots. The technique worked
perfectly on this cosmetic bag.

spell out whatever you please. Simply follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.

add feathers to a ready-to-go
flower clip, or add sparkling
gems to a houndstooth

embellished cosmetic bag. It features delicate

(she’s an iron-on) and dainty heat-set gems.
Tip: Make a beaded zipper charm using
supplies from the Jewelry Department.
branch out
Mix, match and stack our embellishments for
maximum, one-of-a-kind appeal. For example, we
layered birdies on a branch (a simple felt silhouette
applique) with altered felt flowers. Then, we glued on
the clear gems.
» pair up You don’t have time to break out
the embroidery needle and that’s okay. You’ll knock
some socks off with these ready to embellish tea
towels. Just add iron-on letters.
