Hooded Towels

Remember when we so happily got new towels earlier this year? I think I neglected to report that Spenser and Sawyer were still using old towels. Sawyer rotated between two towels: a hooded towel I bought before he was born (ahem, four years ago) and a hooded towel a friend gave Mason when he was born. They were both well-used and not as soft as they once were. Spenser's towels were just as old. Well, actually, older. After all, she is two years older than Sawyer ...

Part of the problem is that our clawfoot bathtub is in our first-floor bathroom for all to see. I was having a hard time, once again, finding towels to complement that room (which is a pale pink). Inexpensive towels can be so ugly.

Anyway, I found an affordable light blue set and a more-pink-than-I-wanted pink set. I was just going to make them simple, until a google search helped me find this tutorial.

I love them. And I find that I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

Love the ric rac! Even though I had no plans on making towels, after visiting the tutorial I think I might give it a try. The ric rac - WAY easier than I thought it would be. In fact, my mouth dropped opened. And I am in need of some baby presents! Thanks!

Oh I looooooooooved my hooded towel when I was a kid. Now I have a hooded robe which I love a lot, too.

That is a great tutorial and one I'll have to think about putting to use for the godkids. Nice work!
