As promised, here, in all it's simplicity, is the first of the ten (or there-abouts) projects I said I would show you.
This hooded towel is as easy as 1,2,3...
1. Match middles of hand and bath towels and sew them together.
2. Fold in half
That was easy. It's actually as easy as 1,2, but that doesn't sound quite as nice, so I added the folding as a step all it's own...
You can really jazz these up with so many different things. My kids' have pockets in the corner on the inside of the towel to put their hands in to keep them wrapped up.
You could embroider them with their names or initials. You could sew on appliques, or use decorative bath towels. Possibilities are endless...
My 13 year old needs a bath robe, but maybe I'll make him a king size hooded towel...tee hee hee. It's so much easier. A hooded towel with a belt! Ya! I know what he's getting for Christmas. ;)
