Hooded Towel Tutorial

These are great for gifts and if you are like me and expecting a cute bundle soon.
Trust me if I can make these, anybody can!

*These are WONDERFUL!!!*

Hand Towel
Sewing Machine

Sew Ribbon with a zig-zag stitch on both long ends of the hand towel.
(Go in just far enough to avoid the existing trim on the towel.)

Fold towel and sew right sides together.  Only on one side.  
I stop a little before the end so I can sew the hand towel to the towel easier later.

Open up the hand towel and it should look like a hood.

Fold towel in half and mark the center.
Fold the ends of the towel to make a pleat at approx. 4 1/2".
Pin in place.

Repeat for both sides.

Sew the right sides of the towel and the hand towel together.
Careful when you are sewing the center of the towel.
The fabric and ribbon is very thick and it is very easy to bend and break needles here.


Hope you enjoy your towels as much as we do!
