We have this tradition in our home where after a baby is done with her bath I wrap her in a towel and present her to everyone sitting on the sofa by saying “Look at this baby!” For some reason they LOVE it.
But to do this I have to be wearing a towel as well and I’m constantly struggling to keep it on while I’m holding one of them in my arms. Often it’s two seconds away from falling off in front of everyone.
I went to the Salvation Army every Wednesday looking for a robe but never found just what I was looking for. Plus, buying a used robe kind of skeeved me out.
So I took an old towel and decided to turn it into a robe, one that could be used for the pool or the bath. It’s really simple! Here, I’ll show you!
Towel you don’t use anymore
2 yards of elastic
velcro (iron on)
Coordintating color towel for optional straps
Step 1: Find a towel that you don’t use anymore
If you have a solid color towel or you like horizontal stripes, leave the towel the way it is.
Sew the elastic at both ends to the towel.
Cut a 5″ piece of velcro.
Take a small hand towel with a similar color and cut two four inch strips.
Trim the excess.
