I used a plain navy fleece robe that already had the contrasting buttonhole stitch detail:

Then I found a coordinating cotton fabric and cut out the letters, zig zag stitched them on and now it's Cubby's:

(This is not Cubby modeling but my son who is the same size.)

Down below I will share the step by step tutorial to make a personalized robe.

cotton letters cut out for personalization

Step 1: Print out letters in desired size.  Iron fusible interfacing to wrong side of cotton fabric.  Using a lightbox place the print out right side down then place the fabric right side down and trace.  Cut out the letters.

Step 2: Begin with the middle letter and pin in place.

Step 3: USing a tight zig zag stitch sew the letters to the robe.  Add next letters on either side, repeating the process.

You have a completely washable robe and a gift Cubby can truly call his own.
