beach towel made into :
kid pool, beach, bath robe
if you would like to make one of these, head to MADE for the pattern!
this was a fun, messy project to finish in a day. the terrycloth is an interesting fabric to work with but it leaves little bits of itself all over you and your house. still need to get going on violet's version of the same robe, but clover's is all finished. here are the details:
the towel came from Target's beach towel section. the selection was less than i hoped for, but we found this lime green striped towel and a pink striped one for violet. my heart was set on polka dots, but there are really cute too. the robe is perfect for going to the pool, beach, or using after a bath.
the hood lining is made of seersucker, which is my new obsession. the feel and look of it is delicious. perfect a beachy piece of clothing!
the strap is sewn on to the back to avoid toddler meltdowns over it being dropped (for the millionth time) and throwing her world out of balance.
the bias tape being sewn on the seam for the hood was a great idea, and i'm glad it was included in the pattern. i am so obsessed with seersucker now.....
spending a nice mild morning out on the deck
clover's shirt happened to match the trim on her robe
