How to Sew a Hooded Bath Towel in Different Patterns

AptParenting Staff Oct 6, 2018
A hooded towel is very comfortable to use and easy to stitch. And it would be better to make it for kids rather than purchasing ready-made ones. Here, you will learn how to sew a hooded towel.
Hooded bath towels are one of the convenient baby products. The pattern is very simple with a hood stitched at the upper side of the towel, which is designed for drying the head portion. The style is similar to other hooded shirts or jackets.
They are available in most of the baby care and kid shops. You can select a pattern for a toddler from a wide range of colors, sizes, and designs. Another alternative is to make them on your own. You can know how to sew a hooded towel with some basic sewing skills.

Procedure

These patterns are very easy to make; you will accomplish making one in a half an hour time.
The things that you require are a large bath towel (size with respect to the toddler), a smaller hand towel (for the hood), (Note: Both the colors can be same) scissors, large straight pins, sewing machine (or needle and thread), and tape. You can make a different design by selecting complementary colors.
First of all, lay the bath towel on a large table or a flat surface and smoothen out. Then, lay the hand towel adjacent to its longer side. If there are decorations on the fabric, lay them with the face down. Align the hand towel properly so that it comes down to the center of the bath towel edge.
After careful adjustment, secure the edges with straight pins so that they do not move while sewing or stitching. Following this, begin sewing with the machine. If you are using needle and thread, stitch the edges together. Whatever be the stitching option, run two or three times at this portion for better securing.
The next step is folding both the fabrics together along the central line. Make sure that the folding is done in such a way that you are viewing the inner side of the towel.
Retaining the folded shape, sew the top seams of the hand towel together to make a hood pattern; you can run two times to avoid tearing. Turn the fabric to the outside, and check the design and the seams.
You can also make custom hooded towels for kids. Over here, select a bath towel that is large enough to wrap the kid and follow to same steps mentioned earlier. They also make great baby shower gift ideas and birthday gifts.
So, the next time, you are going for your friend's baby daughter's birthday, prepare for the gift in advance. Sew her name on the fabric using a bright-colored cloth. This way, you can add a personal touch to the gift, which will be cherished forever.
