Here's a great link to a free hooded baby bath pattern: http://www.brea  wing_pattern.htm It includes a sizing chart for the hood, plus how to attach a hood to a regular towel and how to make some bath glove thingy. The instructions are very detailed and clear. I made a bunch of them for my sisters baby and they fit and looked incredible.

I am looking for hooded baby bath towel pattern.

I don't have an actual pattern, but my mom made these for my kids using a bath towel and washcloth. She sewed the cloth at the center of one side of the towel (the cloth became the hood). Gather as needed. She also folded back the front edge of the cloth and sewed it down so that it would look nice against my sons' faces and they wouldn't feel the edge of the cloth. Wash and dry both towels before sewing. Good luck. (09/13/2006)

You can sew a washcloth to the corner of a regular towel to make the hood. (09/15/2006)

Hooded Baby Bath Towel Pattern

When I make my towels I fold a washcloth down over itself about 1/3 of the way then cut from bottom edge to top at a slight angle so the top is narrower than the bottom. Sew the seams of the washcloth. Take a bath towel and find the middle of the long side and center the washcloth widest side over it. Make pleats in the towel,about 2 or 3 on each side of the middle about and inch each. Pin the wascloth on this and sew securely. My grandkids have used these for years (10/01/2006)

Does anyone have an easy pattern or directions for a hooded baby towel? We have 4 new babies in the family this year and making my own would be so much nicer than buying them!

Thanks so much,

I will do my best to explain this the best I can...

Lay the towel out flat on a table and smooth out. Lay the washcloth on top of the towel, meeting a corner of the towel with a corner of the washcloth. Bring washcloth bottom corner back up... so that its a triangle, with its two corners in the one corner of the Towel. Pin into place. Then, sew the edges together. Double stitch to make sure it will hold well and reinforce the seams. If sewing by hand,sew a straight stitch then come back over it with a blanket stitch on the edges.

And experiment with different sizes of washclothes too. I learned that some of the bigger sizes work better for older babies. And even some of the dish clothes with designs make the cutest cutest hoodie towels!

I hope this helps you. Any questions, just ask me.

Oh, O forgot... if you're using new items, make sure both are new. I washed mine first, then assembled, then washed again. Sometimes they will change shapes and your finished hoody could look "warped" if sewed before washing.

Make it from a towel and a washcloth.
