Hooded Bath Towel
You will need:
1 yard of terry cloth
1 fat quarter same terry cloth
1 fat quarter coordinates flannel fabric
1/3 yard super flannel. Super flannel is stretchy, easier to bind with.
Cut a 9 inch triangle, same size as corner of towel from fat quarter of flannel and fat quarter of terry.
Layer flannel triangle right side up, then corner of towel, then triangle of terry cloth. Using a saucer, or jar lid or other circular object, round off corners with marking pencil or pen. Using rotary cutter, round off corner. Layer the three other corners together and round off the same way.
Lining up edges carefully, sew together the flannel and terry cloths. Turn right side out so that the flannel is on the top of hood and terry cloth is inside.
Cut the super flannel into 1.5 inch strips, press in half, long sides together, and sew along edges of towel to bind. Pull the folded edge over and sew down binding. I used a slanted blanket stitch from my machine with a variegated thread. Sew carefully around the hood, as this is the most visible part. Clip thread and you are done!
