Instructions
  1. Cut a square of terry cloth by folding the fabric diagonally it will take about 1 ¼ yd. of fabric.
  2. Cut a square of flannel the same way.
  3. Layer them on top of each other wrong sides of fabric touching, pin and machine quilt.

     
  4. Machine quilt as desired I did a large grid to hold the two layers to each other. After machine quilting is completed cut excess of to make the terry cloth and the flannel same size! The towel is completed let’s start the hood.
  5. Cut an 11 ½” square of fabric from the flannel, the square folded over will create a triangle or the hood.

     
  6. But before attaching the hood to the towel we need to first embroider the child’s name on one half of the square. Once the embroidery is completed it is optional to add a piece of binding to the fold (or long edge) of the triangle, see photo of finished towels. Then pin the triangle to one of the corners of the completed towel.



  7. You are now ready to add the double fold binding to the towels add this on the terry cloth side and miter the corners as you go.



  8. Finish the binding by turning it to the flannel side use a nice embroidery stitch.
