Here's a great link to a free hooded baby bath pattern: http://www.breakitdowndesign.com/free_baby_hooded_towel_sewing_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.

Not sure if any hoodies are included but there is a great resource for free sewing patterns for baby at Babies-Blog.com -
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the comments that were provided then.
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.
