My kids love hooded towels.
However my kids are giants.
They pretty much outgrew the hooded baby towels before they could walk.
Luckily hooded towels are the world's easiest thing to make.
And not only are they easy and fast
they are super cute and practical as well.
Just my kind of project :)
Oh and most importantly the kids love them!
Ready to get started?!
You will need:
-1 hand towel (or even a large washcloth would probably work)
I found these awesome vintage towels that were the perfect pair for this project.
Take your hand towel and fold it in half hamburger style. Cut along the fold.
*One hand towel will make 2 hoods :)
Take one of the halves of your hand towel and cut it to measure 12 inches in length.
(Do you see how I left the pretty finished edge and trimmed it to size on the edge that I had already cut when I cut it in half).
Pin the right (or good/front) sides together and sew along the top.
*The top should be the side you cut along.
Sew a small diagonal line across the back corner of the hood (the folded edge). This will make your hood a bit rounded.
and sew down.
*I sewed the hood down on the front and the back to make sure it was extra secure.
See, wasn't that easy?!
Now try it on your little one
Happy towel making!
