Towel Robe

Don't forget to check out what everyone else got from the Splendid Swap. The linky party is now up HERE!

I've had this on my to do list since forever and the night before her second swim lesson I was able to whip it up.  It probably would have been easier to just buy her a cover up but I fell in love with this beach towel robe as soon as I saw it on my favorite sewing blog Dana Made It.  Isn't it adorable.

I wish I had more time on my hands to create a tutorial for this but with a newborn that is just not possible right now.  You can buy the pattern from Dana too!  I just used a robe she already had as a pattern, closed my eyes and wished for the best.  It turned out a whole lot better that I expected.  The total cost of the towel robe was $8!  It's so cute I want one for me.

I don't have a Serger so I just zigzagged along the edges.

Covered the raw edges on the outside with bias tape.

The little lady loved it too.  She would come out of the pool freezing cold and this warm robe kept her nice and toasty while she ate her snack.  I love that it doesn't fall of like a regular towel and that it is thick unlike those cover ups.

Loved it so much I plan on making one every summer.

Now we are ready to hit the pool!

Until next time.  Toodles!
