This is a step by step tutorial about how to monogram towels with your childrens initials, so they can be responsible for their own towels and hopefully reduce laundry. The tutorial uses an appliqué technique that can be used on it's own with no sewing required or the appliqué can be machine stitched to ensure long wearing monograms.
