I'm sharing this tutorial under one condition. If you and I are ever going to the same baby shower, I get to give them the towel! wink, wink

I like these so much better than most store bought baby towels. They're cheaper to make, averaging around $10 per towel, and they're much bigger, thicker and softer. My almost six year old is still using his and loves it.

They're nice a big for babies and easily fit a two year old or four year old.

*I hope you can see the pictures all right. I took them several years ago and they're a little dark!*

Materials:

Oversized bath towel
Hand towel (one hand towel will make two hooded towels)
Ribbon, at least 1.5” wide
Thread
Rotary cutter and mat (optional)

Step 1: Cut hand towel

Seems easy enough, thank you for the easy to follow instructions. I was just looking at hooded towels at the store and they are way over priced for a towel that is any good.

I used your tutorial to make one for a baby shower this past weekend. Everyone loved it, including the mother-to-be. Thanks for the easy instructions. I will be making another for our baby that's on the way too. Love the ribbon addition. Wonder if we could make it look like a frog or lady bug somehow?
Hi,
If you want to make it look like an animal, just add ears to the hood! I made a mousie for our daughter, she loves it!

These instructions are very well written-easily followed by a novice sewer. The photographs show the steps beautifully.
