Hooded towels are perfect for the pool, the beach, or just bathing at home and I had always wanted to make one. I really got serious about finally making one when I saw a cute family at our neighborhood pool and they all had matching hooded towels with their names embroidered on them. So I went searching Youtube for the perfect hooded towel tutorial and I struck gold, I found the easiest most straightforward hooded towel tutorial and it could be easily done and did not require a pattern at all! I went to Target and got some towels immediately because I was so excited and thrilled to start this awesome hooded towel adventure.
- A regular size bath towel
- A hand towel
- A sewing Machine
- A Rotary Cutter
- A Cutting Mat
- A small plate
Cut your hand towel 12 1/2 inches wide and 20 inches tall, then use a plate to measure a sei circle where the back of the head will go, cut into a rounded shape. If you wish for the hood to have a little point, skip this step, this will be the case for many animal themed towel ideas.
Then sew the hood right sides together then do a dense zig zag stitch over the edges to prevent fraying (if you have a serger then use that by all means)
Then find the middle of your lager towel and middle of your hood then sew the two right sides together.
Then do another zig zag stitch over the seam and enjoy your adorable hooded towel.
This was the easiest sewing project I have ever done, I love it!
