I purchased some very cheap and soft towels from Target this past week to make a hooded towel for Brody. The towel was $3.99 and the hand towel was $2.99. Since you cut the hand towel in half, you could buy two towels to one hand towel to create two hooded towels (for a total of $10.97 plus tax). Not a bad deal. That’s less than $5.50 per hooded towel and they make a great gift! I followed an easy tutorial.
I had some frog fabric on hand, so decided to use that as an accent for the hood of the towel. I think it turned out cute. Made it a bit more personal and definitely looks more hand made. Now all I have to do is try it out.
And last week, I went to my friends house (thanks Lauren for your help) and she showed me how to make a tutu for my 4-year-old niece. My niece loves to play dress up. I can’t wait to see my niece in this tutu. It was so simple to make (just very tedious).
So, there you have it. My latest creations. Next on my list (and this won’t happen until mid December), is making a quilt out of the onesies that Brody wore his first year (what memories). I got them out this past week and some of them are so tiny! He hasn’t wore a onesie since he was 11-months and now looks like such a big kid with his shirts and pants. He’s growing up so fast and this quilt will be one way to preserve his first year. Here is a picture of someone else’s onesie quilt that I’m going to try to copy using these fabrics (see below).
