I had to update some items that I made years ago. I had the fabrics, the pattern was oh so easy but I lacked initiative and time.
My twin granddaughters turned 7 last month and they had needed bigger hooded towels for a couple of years now.
My daughter Maili agreed to model them for me since the girls are not allowed to have their photo on social media.
These were birthday gifts but not total surprises since I had them choose the flannel and the towel that they wanted. This one was Mackenzie's choice.
This is the flannel that Severn chose.
They are long on the girls but not quite floor length.
Severn had first choice of fabrics and she chose this turquoise colour towel. Her favourite colours are actually pink and purple but I didn't have any.
I purchased the flannel a couple of years ago in Stratford, Ontario when my husband and I were travelling around collecting patterns for Row by Row.
This was in Fabricland and the words are all Finnish words. That's the reason I bought it - my heritage is Finnish. Severn chose the flannel because she likes cats. I also have a smaller piece of the same fabric but with a pink background. It just wasn't enough for the whole hooded towel. On hindsight, I could have made the hood part in pink. Oh well.
I did make one for their cousin Teemu since he was in need of a bigger one but I forgot to take photos.
