This is a great (and cheap) gift idea for kids. All you need is a towel and a washcloth. In a pinch, I have even used one of our old bath towels and wash cloths when I needed a last minute gift. The cloth and towel should match or coordinate.
Center the washcloth on the center of one of the long sides of the towel. Sew attaching it to the towel. Next, bring the loose ends of the wash cloth together and sew forming the hood.
Hey that would make great b/d, Christmas presents too when money is tight.......good idea thanks
Thanks for the idea! I wonder if it would work well with using a hand towel instead of a wash cloth. I'll have to try.
I made a hooded towel like this before by attaching a washcloth but the hood was way too small for my 10 month old. If you have a larger baby I definitely recommend this site: http://www.breakitdowndesign.com it has sizes for small babies up to toddlers. Also lots of photos, I'm such a visual person really and need to be shown.
I had read on another site that you use the wash cloth for about new born to 2 years and a hand towel for older kids/adults. and if the hand towel is to large you can cut it short to the size you need. I think this is a really great idea, especially if you have an embroidery machine and do special things.
