And even now in our house, we are not in short supply of hooded bath towels. Each of my boys have a few. I made this one in the event Riley was a girl. He doesn't seem to mind that there are ladybugs on his towel.
I find that these hooded bath towels are my go-to gift when I have a baby shower. They're easy, gender neutral and are waaayyy better than the ones you can buy. I always use the Thomas O'Brien towels at Target. They are soft, thick, fluffy, absorbent and most importantly within my budget.
My mother was the first to find this ribbon. It's a French Jacquard woven cotton and very hard to find. She found in at a store in L.A. and I immediately fell in love with it. After looking on every website I know of, I finally found some on Etsy.
And it goes perfectly with the Thomas O'Brien Yellow Springs towel.
Our friends had a baby girl 6 months ago and we had our chance to meet Grace for the first time last weekend. I couldn't wait to pull out my ribbon and towel, which have been waiting in the wings for me to use them.
