Instructions
1. In a plastic squeeze bottle, mix the first color of dye according to the manufacturer's instructions.
2. Lay out the towel flat on a sheet of plastic that will protect the work surface. Use the squeeze bottle to apply dye to the bottom couple of inches of fabric.
3. Mix the second color of dye and apply it above the first band of color.
4. Mix the third color of dye and use it to create a third and final band of color.
5. Rinse and dry the towel according to the dye manufacturer's instructions.
6. Cut a piece of lace trim as wide as the towel and stitch it over the seam at the bottom of the towel.
