Look what I did to my microfiber towels

Dh has been complaining for the past few weeks that he cannot fold the towels properly to fit in dd's dipes. Every time he would do it the towel was hanging out the back, lol. So I decided to fix the problem.. I folded all 25 towels in thirds and stiched them around the edges. So now they are one solid insert.

Now, they slip right in! No more fuss for DH.

Re: Look what I did to my microfiber towels

Way to make it easier for dh to stuff those dipes!! I wouldn't let my dh near the stuffing bcs he couldn't get them in without getting the mf all twisted up in there. I had my mom serge some for me. But we are switching to all fitteds and pfs, so I don't have to worry so much!!

Re: Look what I did to my microfiber towels

I did that to mine too, but I didnt take off the bright orange serging.....it really bothers me now. Dh is going to buy me a serger so I am going to redo all of mine this week....and hopefully make some hemp flats too!
Your look great btw!

Re: Look what I did to my microfiber towels

I have seen some other mamas do this too with their MF towels, but they said it took them a really long time to dry. You'll have to let us know how the drying goes!

Re: Look what I did to my microfiber towels

BTW, drying time on mine is no more than the MOE ones.

I bought 25 14x14 (or maybe they were 17x17) blue ones from sam's club for $11 and the thickness when tri-folded is the same as the MOE ones.
