We had a problem at the swimming pool this summer: my kids could not manage to keep their towels wrapped around themselves and were FREEZING every time we left the water. Simple solution: Hooded towel.
Easy to make as well. You should try it.
Supplies: 1 bath towel, 1 matching hand towel, thread
First, cut the hand towel in half.
Then, pin the half-hand towel to the center of the bath towel. Leave the unfinished edge at the top.
Sew that in place, then fold the whole thing in half again.
Sew the unfinished edges together. Flip it inside out, and voila! Hooded towel.
It would be super cute to embellish with ribbon or Heat N Bond an applique on there. I might do that when I redo their bathroom, each towel having their first name initial on it.
