Gavin and Elizabeth have outgrown their baby hooded bath towels. I've been looking around at tutorials and found this one and Nina liked it too. She got the bright colored towels at Target and I sewed them up. They sewed up fast but these towels turned out too too big for an almost 2 year old and a 3 year old.
I used white thread that blended it really well, and a zig zag stitch to seal up some of the raw edges, others got turned under twice and then zig zagged, There was a even a square of towel left to make a small wash cloth.
I could of cut the top of the hood straight but I cut it n the diagonal. I think the point looks sort of cute and elf like. But Nina said it reminder her of a KKK hood - but those guys don't wear sunshine yellow stripes, do they?
So, I will be buying several more beach towels to sew up more hooded towels to have here and their own homes. I think they will be nice for bath time and after a swim in the wading pool.
This striped beach towel comes in several colors - I think there was a hot pink, grass green, bright blue too - and they sell for $3.97.
