You can’t help but smile as you see their toes and fingers shrivel up like raisins. As you hold them tight while snuggled up in a cozy bathrobe, you’d wish you could bottle up that moment forever.

Easy Steps on How to Make a Baby Bathrobe
If you wanted to learn how to make a baby bathrobe, here’s a cute and easy DIY for a hooded bath towel. It’s actually a great sewing project for beginner moms. With only two seams to sew, you can produce a warm, snuggly DIY Hooded Bath Towel for a little one. The hooded bath towel also makes an excellent and useful gift.
Materials needed to make the DIY Hooded Bath Towels:
- Two (2) large bath towels
- One (1) hand towel
- Matching thread
Here are some quick and easy steps on how to make a baby bathrobe for your little one.
- Step 1: Cut the hand towel into half. Each of the DIY Hooded Bath Towel only needs half of a hand towel.
- Step 2: To make the hood, fold half the hand towel lengthwise. You can cut about 2 inches off the end of the towel that has already been cut to make sure the hood isn’t too large. Then, pin it to prepare to sew the first seam.
- Step 3: Sew the pinned edge to create the top of the hood.
- Step 4: Then, flip the hood inside-out and ensure that the sewn edge is inside the hood.
- Step 5: Prepare for the second and final seam by pinning the hood to the large towel’s edge. Make sure it is centered.
- Step 6: Sew the final seam. Make sure that it’s close to the edge.
- Step 7: Now, you can throw those kids in the bath! You are guaranteed that you have a soft and cuddly Hooded Bath Towel waiting for them.
Tips on How to Make a Baby Bathrobe
If you’re excited to learn how to make a baby bathrobe, here are some tips to consider.
- Make sure that the towel you’re going to use has already been washed. Most will shrink a little, and you probably want that to happen before you do all the work.
- Notice that some of the edges have frayed slightly, but the seams hold strong after washing the robe a couple of times. To prevent this from happening, fold them over and sew them once more.
- You can also add a couple of loops for the tie. You’ll end up with a good-sized washcloth to go with the robe when it’s done, but you could also trim that to create a couple of belt loops.
- When you are hemming all the seams, the material of the towel can be very thick. It is strongly recommended to use a thicker needle, maybe a jean’s needle or something similar will do.
- You can also get a beach towel and create something similar for a much older child and scale the measurements up a bit.
