Step by step Bath cape

  1. Cut a 75 cm x 75 cm square on the terry cloth. In one of the 4 corners pass the neck pattern and cut.
  2. Join 6 of the panels together forming two rows of 3 panels each as we show you in the video.
  3. Cut the hood in terry cloth and one of the panels. Place the bias on the hem and overlock the rest with a zigzag stitch.
  4. Place the panels on the back of the towel and the hood on the right. Cut the panels into the shape of the towel. Round off the remaining 3 corners. Overlock around with a zigzag stitch and sew the bias.
  5. Position the velcro at the ends of the neck and sew.
