My Own Turbie Twists

One of the gifts I received on Christmas Eve was a Turbie Twist from my sister-in-law. My older sister exclaimed, "I love these things!" I had never used one and really didn't think I needed one until that moment. I was immediately intrigued. Maybe I had always needed one and never knew I did.

The next morning (Christmas morning) after all the gifts were opened and I was looking back through my basket of sisters' gifts I decided to check out this Turbie Twist. I turned it inside out and said to Joe, "I could so make this." And so, the next day I did.

It's true that the original is a nice microfiber and I only had regular terry cloth in my baby fabric bin, but they work just as great. And maybe a tad more absorbent than the original.

I made one white turbie. Two blue ones (I was using leftover terry cloth from my bib making days before and after Sawyer was born) and one

swirl. For a little girl.

This one so reminds me of swirled soft-serve ice cream. Don't ya think?

I am so happy to be rid of a "hair" towel. That's just one big towel I don't have to wash!

(Here is a tutorial for one if you don't have one to trace.)

I love that twist look! Turbie Towels are essential equipment in the Oodles household - there's a 15 year old girl with long hair on the premises.

Super cute.

I think I now understand the feeling of never realizing that I needed something until now. Thanks a lot.
