And then there was this brainstorm:
I took the measurements from Lil Lady's favorite bath towel and created this divinely soft, cuddle fleece, towel. This stuff is beyond luxurious. Where was this fabric when I was wee?? It's complete with a fleece hood and a fin on top. This size still fits Lil Lady at 4 1/2 so this towel will see some sweet days and weeks and years.
And I made another for my etsy shop, just in case someone else thought it was cute and wanted to own it for themselves! ;-)
