hoodie towel

Poor Micah has been using little infant bath towels his whole life. I've always planned to get him a child size hoodie towel but they are so expensive we just made due. With baby boy coming soon I figured I needed to get on the ball with some "big boy" stuff for Micah. Apparently a towel was the first thing on the list. I refused to spend $20+ on a towel with some sort of animal decoration, etc. so I went to the internet/blogging world trying to track down a way to make one. I saw a couple descriptions but nothing I really like until the next day when I accidentally found my way to make and takes and the post they had up was for a child's hooded towel!!!! It was so easy!! I made two for Micah and one each for my niece's Keelie and Haley. Leah don't worry you will get one soon, but since I used towels and hand towels I already owned but never used I ran out fast!

It really was the easiest thing I have sewn (except for the quilt binding around Micah's hood which was hard as crap and I will never sew that stuff on a curve again!!) I even bought little iron on patches to decorate the towels. If you are a beginner sewer like me and want an easy project check out make and takes for some fun ideas.


  1. Too Cute!!! I love it. I wish I knew how to sew.

  2. This looks great! And I love that cute little elephant! Thanks for linking to me.

  3. Awesome job! I am so impressed!

  4. Cute Towel! I maybe I can get into some cool projects for the boys and baby #3. Now that I feel a little better!
