What’s the Project? These children’s hooded towels are a perfect sewing project because they make a great gift for babies, toddlers, and kids. These hooded bath towels are made to look like dinosaurs, minions, animals and other childhood favorites.
When my babies were little tiny newborn babies, my mother in law made these fabulous hooded bath towels for them. They were made from actual bath towels so they were thick and warm and cozy and perfect!
And then she taught me to make them and I made them as baby gifts.
At some point along the line, I started putting faces on them. I don’t even remember when or why, and I can’t remember which was first, but I think it was the frog hooded towel. Or maybe the duck.
And then I started creating all of the characters and now you can see all these cute children’s hooded towels and make them yourself!
Honestly, friends, I can’t even choose which is my favorite! They are just so cute! I love the Minion, the puppy, the owls, the superheroes and so many more of them.
Which do you love best? I’d love to hear! Here’s a look at these great hooded towels.

Thank you so much for these! I’ve made the minion and olaf for my first two boys. My third boy loves elephants so I created one since I didn’t see one here and it isn’t easy!
Way to go!
Lovely and creative idea. Can’t wait to attempt them. I was wondering if you will do a basic video on the hooded towels just to help with the basic idea. Thank you
I should make one! I haven’t yet.
Can I get your designs please ? Is it fine for me to sew those designs and sell? Thanks
Yes, you can sew them and sell them. I don’t mind. 🙂
Are you adding any more hooded towels this year? They are the cutest things! I am going to attempt the frog this week.
I should. I kind of got burned out for a while, but maybe I could get myself going again.
Hi, I love your hooded towels so far I’ve done 2 of them. What great gifts!!!! I know you’re busy but I’m hoping you might help me a little. I want to make a horse hooded towel but am stumped with the head and putting a mane down the back of the hood. Truthfully the long head is what has me stumped.
Thank you for any help !
I would do it like I did the dinosaur/dragon hooded towel but instead of spikes, sew pieces of yarn in there to make a mane. http://crazylittleprojects.com/2012/09/dragon-hooded-towel-tutorial.html
Thank you so much for these tutorials! After much deliberation, I made the lion one for my son for Christmas. I’m so pleased with the results. It’s adorable!
Your tutorials are very clear and so easy to follow. I will be making more. Thanks again.
Such talent. Can’t really pick a favorite as they are all just adorable. Hope I am able to accomplish at least 2 of them, or maybe more. Have many great nieces and great nephews that these would be the perfect gifts for Christmas. Thank you so much for sharing.

I love your hooded towels that you’ve been running. I attended a craft show this Fall and they did a cute Spiderman. She was almost sold out of the Spiderman, I should have bought one so that maybe I could sew one of them. Do you have a pattern for one by any chance? I for one would appreciate it. Thank you so much. Thanks for breaking them down to look easy. Next job…repair my sewing machine
after all it’s use, it needs to be fixed.
Hmmm, that’s a fun idea! I will add it to my to do list.
Where do you buy your colored towels? I know target sells them cheap but they aren’t very absorbent. Thanks so much! So cute!
Those Target ones are the ones I get. 🙂
