I love babies in hooded towels. I think they are adorable.
My older kids love them too, and are always reluctant to give theirs up, even when their little bums are showing out the bottom because they grow and the towels don't. I couldn't find any larger hooded towels in the stores for my two older kids, so I decided to make them myself.
This is a super easy project (anything I sew has to be) but if you need a detailed tutorial, there are dozens online. I just made it up as I went using my toddler's towel as a guide. I made two in about 15 minutes, and I am not a super-sewer!
What you need:
a large towel- I used a beach towel
a hand towel in a coordinating color. If you are making one for a small child, use only half the towel.
a sewing machine
optional- coordinating ribbon or appliques for embellishment
Lay out your towel then fold it in half. Mark center with a pin. Repeat with small towel.
