hooded towels for grandma D’s

Now that I am a little better acquainted with my sewing machine I have boldly taken on a few more sewing projects, on Thursday I made three more hooded towels, two to leave at grandma D’s house and one for my friend who is expecting a baby girl in September.

Thursday night as I was folding the large white hooded towels I was struck with a horrible thought: my IKEA clearance towels had inadvertently become Baby’s First White Supremacy Robes.

So Friday morning I rummaged through my craft bin in the garage, found some ribbon and orange fabric paint and set about fixing the matter.

I had orange and yellow ribbon. Oliver expressed a preference for orange, Patrick didn’t care, so he got yellow. The towels were trimmed in ribbon along the hood and the bottom, then I ran out of ribbon. For a personalized look, I used the orange fabric paint leftover from our Halloween 2010 pumpkin costumes.

I am fairly pleased with the end result, we now have two huge hooded towels to leave at grandma D’s.

  1. Ha! Baby’s first white supremacy robes. Nice work! I’m going to have to start the Renaissance Festival costumes soon. You’re so industrious!
