I seriously dislike store bought hooded baby towels. They are small, flimsy, and usually aren't terribly absorbent. Boo! Hiss!
On the other hand, I love handmade hooded towels. So when my college roommate (from days of yore) requested a gift for her cousin - I knew a big fluffy hooded towel would be a hit. It's the perfect mix of practical and adorable.
I can't exactly take creative credit for this particular design. I followed the tute at Prudent Baby dot com.
This accent fabric is great because its whimsical without being too cutesy. I only wish that I had enough left over to make a drawstring bag to wrap the towel in. Oh well...next time. Next time.
