How to Make Hooded Towels

I received some hooded towels as a gift when my oldest was born. I fell in love with them and now they are all I use. When it was time to get some new ones, I realized it is much cheaper to just make my own.


  • 1 bath towel
  • 1 hand towel (matching)
  • scissors
  • pins
  • thread and sewing machine

Step 1: Cut the hand towel in half, long ways

Step 2: Put a pin on the edge, in the middle of the hand towel and body towel length wise and line them up. Pin the rest together.

Step 3: Sew the two together

Step 4: Fold the hand towel in half to form the hood and stitch the top together

Nifty Tip:

Since you only use half of the hand towel, I bought 2 bath towels to easily make 2 hooded towels. Target and Wal-Mart frequently have towels on clearance. I got these for $3.00 each.
