I love to make fun party favors. But they really have to practical. I can't tell you how many times I have found the little squiggly eyed poppers at the bottom of a closet or in the car, and they eventually made it into the trash. So when it was time to start planning Pre-teen's birthday party, my creative wheel's started turning. She decided that she wanted to have a swim party, and it had to be a Luau theme. Okay perfect, since at the time the Dollar Store had lots of cute Luau themed items. From tiki cups and leis, to fun little signs and grass skirts. We did it all. But when it came to the party favors, I wanted the girls to be able to really use them. It's my mommy side... if I'm going to pay for it, I want them to be used.

So I decided to make some monogrammed towels. Now I don't have a fancy sewing machine that does monogramming so I had to get creative. And I really wanted to include some fun fabric. I found a fun black and white polka dot fabric and used it to add each girl's initial to their favorite colored towel.

What do you think?

I love how they came out. Each towel cost about $5 to make, and was totally worth it. The girls loved their towels and were so surprised to find that they got their favorite colors.

My daughters are now asking for all their things to be monogrammed. I think I'm kind of having a Laverne and Shirley flashback.
