Here are a couple of towel/head wrap sets I made for 2 of my nieces.  These are for 7 year olds, so they required cutting some towels down to size.  My house is full of towel fuzzies, but I think the results were worth it.   Smiley  Let's hope they like them:


Here's the head wrap in action:

Cute! Nice job. I love the embellishments (ribbon or cut material?)

Thanks for the compliments! 
I used a tutorial for the head wrap, and changed the dimensions a little.  I think I made mine less than 10" tall and about 30" long.  I also just used 1/8" elastic to stuff the towel end into instead of a button:

I kinda sorta used this tutorial for the towel wraps.  Obviously I didn't do the embroidery and my straps are a little wider.  I also folded my towel down to cover the elastic instead of just stitching it in.  It's pretty close, though:

Quiltersblock, that's ribbon.  I wouldn't recommend satin ribbon with horizontal stripes to anyone.  It looks a little wonky.  The grosgrain I used on the other one hid the imperfections much better.   Smiley

Very cute, I'm sure they will just love them! 

I had bath wraps on my todo list for quite a while, too.  I need to make them with sleeves though since they get so cold coming out of the bath in the winter.  One of these days I'll get to it!
