Just look at this cute, easy DIY Hooded Bath Towel! It is a perfect sewing project for beginners. You can create one today for a sweetheart in your life!Being a mommy, there is nothing like bath time.  I have witnessed my children hunt dinosaurs, dive for blue whales, and mine for gold, all while in our bathtub.  It seems as though their imaginations take them to a new world each night as they enter the bath.

As their fingers and toes shrivel up like raisins, I can’t help but smile.  Their true childhood innocence shines through.  Their giggles and sweet voices will not stay this way for long.  Soon they would rather jump in the shower, and their imaginations will take a back seat.  

As I take them from the bath, I hold them tight while they are snuggled up in a cozy towel.  These are the moments I wish I could bottle up for eternity.  These cuddles melt my heart each night.  To be sure my little ones know just how much I love them, I wanted to create the perfect towel for them to wrap up it.  

Just look how cute this easy DIY Hooded Bath Towel is!  It is a great sewing project for beginners and just what bath time was missing.  With just two seams to sew, you can create a warm, snuggly DIY Hooded Bath Towel for a little sweetheart in your life.   These also make excellent and useful gifts!  Look at the simple steps below and get sewing!!

Materials Needed to make 2 DIY Hooded Bath Towels:
2 large bath towels
1 hand towel
matching thread

Step 1: Cut hand towel in half.  Each DIY Hooded Bath Towel only requires half of a hand towel.  This is why I typically make two at a time.

Step 2: Fold one half of the hand towel lengthwise.  This will eventually form the hood.  To be sure the hood is not too large, I cut about 2 inches off the end that has already been cut.  This piece can be thrown away.  I then pin it, preparing to sew the first seam.

Step 3: Sew pinned edge, creating the top of the hood.

Step 4: Flip the hood inside-out, making sure the sewn edge is inside.  

Step 5: To prepare for the second and final seam, pin the hood to the edge of the large bath towel, being sure it is centered.  (see picture below)

  1. If you flip the hand towel and put the seam to the back it makes it so you can add machine embroidery or ribbon easier. I’ve been making it that way for years.

    P.s. Love your branding! I’m a new fan. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I was just checking out your blog…wow! You have also gained a new fan! Thank you so much for featuring my project and I look forward to keeping in touch!

  3. I am making this for my 7 yr old.. should I skip the part about cutting off the 2 inches (in step 2)? Or is that necessary for sewing? I just want to make sure the hood is large enough for her.

    1. Great question! I would suggest to still cut that 2 inches off. I have a 9-year-old that uses this DIY Hooded Bath Towel, and it still fits her just fine. I hope it turns out awesome and your little one loves it!

  4. wow that’s a very creative idea and looks like a high quality, also it d be low price DIY as well I would never be able to come up with that 🙂 I think it could work on beach and bath towels as well You have great skills that’s for sure i will try it on my Turkish peshtemal towel thanks a lot
