|You need a towel, hand towel and ribbon about 18" long.|
|For the hood, cut the hand towel in half.|
|Sew the ribbon across the smooth part of the towel.|
|Make sure to sew down the sides too.|
|Fold over and sew top edge. Depending on the towel...I stitched two lines on the fold.|
|This is what it looks like on the front.|
|Fold towel in half and cut an arc out of the corner.|
|Turn inside out and stitch along the edge just cut. I stitched twice to reinforce it.|
|This is what it looks like turned right side out.|
|The top edge here in the picture is what gets sewed to the towel.|
|Find the center of the long edge of the towel.|
|Pin the center of the hood to the center of the towel edge.|
|Make two pleats on each side of the pinned center.|
|Pin the pleats and the edges two the towel. Then sew on. I sew twice to reinforce it and make sure to back stitch on the edges.|
|As you can see when doing it this way with a hand towel instead of a wash rag, gives you a nice big hood. My 12 year old still wears her yellow hooded towel from when she was a baby!|
|This is my 9 year old. The hood fits very nice on her cute little head.|
Thanks for the tutorial! Would it be okay if I link to it on my blog, Thymely Stitches? One photo would be nice too. Thanks!
This is a great gift idea...thanks Jenny, I love the gray!!!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial!
I will have to make a few of these for my new grandson!
Great job! hooded towels were my favourite gift and also a favourite gift to give. I have that exact ribbon and what a great use for it.
Thanks for sharing this. I am a beginning sewer and this was very easy to follow. The pictures are great. I needed them.
Thanks for this tutorial. It was very easy to understand and your pictures were very helpful. :)
Perfect! My 3YO has a hooded towel and his little brother is getting too big for the baby towels, this is on my to-do list. Found you on Pinterest, thank you for sharing!
Hi, I have some questions please. I want to make this although I have never sewn before. This tutorial is the easiest I have seen to follow with the photos of the end product that look so professional.
Do u have any specific measurements to get the shape of the hood that u cut out?
I have some microfiber towels that don't have a harsh edge. Would it affect the design or end product to skip the fold over and sewing the end of the towel?
Thanks for ur tutorial and any help u can offer
