The Perfect Gift: A Trio of Nativity Towels

Our Nativity towels are a product of wanting to come up with the perfect combination of vibrance, scale, contrast, and trim. Each towel that we made sparked another idea and we ended up with three versions and we love them all! Check them out!

This flour sack towel is both sweet and funky. The manger is Amy Butler Full Moon Dot in Lime and the stable is a chocolate brown pincord. The star is a double layer of the same lime green polkadot with a cute diamond pattern red and pink fabric. Sweet little Jesus’ head is barely seen in a yellow patterned fabric. The bottom of the towel is banded in the Amy Butler green polkadot! Love!
This white cotton towel has a horizontal textured stripe pattern. The manger and star are a simple black and white pindot pattern fabric. The stable is a herringbone patterned black wool fabric. The towel is finished off with black pom pom fringe at the bottom. Simple and classic. Love it, too!
Finally, this towel is a soft,thick basketweave white cotton . The manger is a sweet pink and red diamond pattern fabric with Baby Jesus’ little head resting on it in a sweet yellowish gold print. The stable is a fern green polka dot. The Bethlehem Star is a double overlay applique of the same red and pink diamond fabric and yellowish gold fabric. As we always add a little whimsy, the bottom of the towel is trimmed out in a simple and sweet white pom pom fringe! Love them all!
