Okay, I've got a great 20 minute (if that) sewing project for you.
2. Washcloth or hand towel
There are two options for sewing a hooded towel. The easier of the two would be just to use a washcloth. I would have done this, except the coordinating washcloth that I picked was super teeny, too teeny to work for me. So I grabbed a hand towel. If you're using a washcloth step this first step.
STEP ONE: Fold your hand towel in half and cut as shown.
STEP TWO: With right sides together, sew a straight stitch and a zigzag along the edge, as shown. Then flip right side out.
If you're doing the washcloth, fold the washcloth in half and sew up the top of the washcloth (not the back, like I'm doing with the hand towel.)
STEP THREE: Pin ribbon along edge of hood and sew in place.
STEP FOUR: Fold big towel in half and place hood, folded in half in the middle of towel.
STEP FIVE: Open towel up and pin hood in place. Sew a straight stitch and zig zag to hold hood in place.
That's it, super simple, right?
I love these super simple hooded towels.
FYI-- My doesn't-really-sew-often sister made the other three that I have. It's an easy project that makes a great baby shower gift. I've made two others for my friends' babies.
This towel was made for baby. She pretty teeny, though, and it makes it pretty tricky to model the towel
So after a couple of rolls...
I put it on sister so we could get a good look at it.
