How to Make a Terry Cloth Towel Robe

Thanks to everyone who watched my television debut on the Happi House this morning. If you don’t get the CW channel and missed the show, I’ll post a link as soon as I get one.

In the meantime, let’s make a beach cover up for those soon to be summer days that will be spent lounging around the pool being served umbrella clad drinks by handsome cabana boys. (A girl can dream can’t she?)


Just grab some towels, ribbon, elastic, your trusty sewing machine and click here to see the full tutorial.




When you’re finished, throw on a swim suit and some flip flops, grab a good book, wrap your new towel robe around you and head to the nearest beach chair for a relaxing day on the water.

Enjoy your Sunday!

    I usually just rehem old towels but they still look old. Will be trying your bias tape update and making some after bath robes. Like you I hate to through things out that still have a bit of life left in them and love watching for your newest ideas!
    Thank you

  3. I’ve made wraps, with the elastic on one end that goes above the bust (or waist) and has velcro. It was cheaper than buying and I could customize for my kids as needed. Now…going to have to try a robe!!!

    Very clever, as usual! The terry cloth is such a practical fabric for the cover-up. I pinned this so I will remember. Thanks!

    So, so cute! Your projects are so do-able for the average sewer, and on top of that you have a great eye for fabrics and trims that makes them stand out even more. Another great project 🙂

  8. This looks adorable! So cute and easy to wear!
