Toddler Bathrobe from Dishtowels!

I found THE most ADORABLE dish towels at the dollar store last week, and knew immediately what they were destined to become...  A little pint-sized bathrobe for JellyBean!  The bright colors and fun bold print are just perfect for the job!  Best of all, it only took two dish towels, some twill tape, and less than thirty minutes to make it!  [Come see how!]

Project Estimate:

  • two dish towels, $1 each
  • 3 1/2 yards 3/4" cotton twill tape, about $1/yd or on hand

Total:  $2 and up

    Love it! So ingenious. I wish I had some toddlers lying around that I could make that for, sadly my boys are elementary school age. Maybe a coverup? ;-).
