My daughter got a hooded bath towel when she was a babe….and she has worn it to rags. She asked me to “hot glue a new one” (cause hot glue is the answer to everything in this house.) I didn’t hot glue…but sewed it instead.
and guess what…it’s super easy!!!!
take the hand towel and fold in half.
you are going to cut this shape out…about 10 inches up…(You can totally adjust this for bigger or smaller kids)
You are going to put right sides together and sew right along with where you cut…
since terry cloth has a good fray to it…I put on a zig zag stitch to finish the edges (you can be all fancy and use a serger….)
turn it right sides out and lay out…find the middle of your bath towel and match it up with the middle of your hand towel…and sew the bottom of that to the top of your bath towel….
you have sewn yourself a hooded bath towel! congrats to you.
but since you are now the master of your domain (aka your sewing machine)
let’s fancy that sucker up!!!
I added a fun initial
and some ruffles around the hood edge
it is perfect for pool side (super awesome that i’m posting it right before fall….#slackercity) It stays on and is easy to wrap up in.
(don’t mind her face. it is what it is. this photo shoot cost me an ice cream cone and some chapstick.
