Sewing Project: A Baby Towel
My good friends are having a baby next month. I'm pretty excited and not just for all the itty bitty baby things I get to make. Although to be fair, I have been turning out a fair number of baby clothes lately. I offered to make anything (within reason) that they wanted for the new baby. I figured if I was going to be making things for the new baby, I ought to at least make things the parents-to-be actually want.
They asked if I would make one of these. The idea is that instead of just a regular towel, it's an apron/bib to keep the adult somewhat dry that can easily be pulled off to wrap around the baby. The loop that holds it together also functions as a hood for the baby. It's a pretty simple design, but pretty ingenious.
It's really just a piece of terry cloth cut to size and edged in bias tape. If you'd like to make one, here are the dimension that I used.
