Made some really cute hooded towels for a friend of mine who is having twin girls in November. Here is a step by step…
Cut a hand towel in half then fold back the “decorative” edge about 2 1/2 – 3 inches and sew. You can add a ribbon or embellishment because this will be the top of the hood.
Fold hand towel (good sides together) length wise and sew.
Open towel and fold down making a “cone” shape
Sew cone about 3 1/2 inches down creating a “flat top” cone. Once sewn, cut off the top part of the cone making a straight edge.
Time to sew the hood onto the towel. Fold large towel in half and lay the hood (inside out) on top of the large towel with edges lined up together. Sew the two towels together following the edge of the hood to the large towel… hopefully this is making sense. Whala… you have your hooded towel. Please let me know if you have questions. Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest.
This pic is just to demonstrate where to put the hood. You need to turn the hood inside out before you sew… see next picture.
Sew where pins are inserted
Follow and sew the hood entirely onto the towel
