As a mommy of 4 I have given a LOT of baths over the past 6 years. With my daughter I a few of those cute hooded towels you can buy at the store and one towel my mother-in-law had made for me. I quickly realized all those little towels totally suck. They are cute...but they are also thin and too small. I like a nice big towel, even when they are really little. It is so much nicer to just completely wrap your little baby in a lot of thick warm fuzziness. Even better your baby will never grow out of it. My daughter still uses hers.
Being the nice person that I am, I am going to show you how to make one yourself.
Now you can make these towels as cute as you want. There are tons of cute towels out there and you can always add ric rac, rufffles, or ribbon. I just like this color of green for baby Lyle (which for some reason photographed not well, but in person it is a nice pistachio apple color). So I decided not to add anything to it.
A normal sized towel
A matching wash cloth
A sewing machine. (there isn't that much sewing, so if you don't have a machine you could probably do sew it by hand.)
