Here’s a nice mix of tutorials that are great for both the beach and the tub! You’ll find a few different ideas for embellishing as well as some projects designed just for baby which are nice for gift-giving. I’ll be adding to this list as I find more goodies with something unique to offer :).
Backpack : This clever project is a backpack & hooded towel in one!
Frog : Takes about an hour (max) and less than $10 to make.
Monster : Fun for toddlers, you’ll need an old sheet (or fabric of choice), fleece (for eyes & back spikes), flannel (for eyes and teeth).
Spiced Up : Trimmed with 1/3 yard of a cotton print.
Simple : Instructions for this are via pdf.
For Baby : Made with pretty material, terry cloth and double-fold bias tape.
