I don’t know about anyone else, but my family is obsessed with Star Wars and can’t wait for the new Star Wars movie to come out in December. In fact, my husband has already purchased movie tickets so he can take our daughter to the very first showing at our local theater in 3D. So…just in case you missed the most recent trailer see below!
Because of this obsession I decided to make a Yoda Hooded Towel for one of my boys (I’m not sure which one yet, I think they’ll all like it!) for Christmas (I’ll probably have to make more than just this one!). And also hopefully this cute 3 year old can forget about this towel in the next couple of months. 🙂
I also couldn’t decide which pictures to use of this cute boy, so I put them all up.
If you want to make your own Yoda Hooded towel, this is what you’ll need:
- 1 brown bath towel
- 1 green hand towel
- thread, sewing machine, fabric scissors
That’s it! When it comes to making hooded towels, this one is really easy and quick to make.
To begin, cut your green hand towel is half as shown in the picture below.
Then fold up the bottom a few inches on one of the halves and sew straight across.
Then cut out your Yoda Hooded Towel Pattern and cut out 4 of them from the other half of your green hand towel. Then lay them together in groups of two as shown.
Then sew around them both, leaving the end open, and turn right side out.Then cut little slits in the main hood piece, where you want to ears to go and slide the ears in to the slits.
Then flip the hood piece to the back and sew the ears on from the back.
When you are all finished sewing the ears on, it will look something like this.
Then fold the hood in half (the ears pretty much line up with each other) and sew along the back of the hood, which is the left side of the picture below.
After you have sewn the back of the hood, lay the hood like this.
And sew a straight line up there at the top of the hood. This will make the hood a little more rounded and a little less pointed.
And then cut off that top point.
Now that your hood is all finished it is time to attach it to the brown bath towel. I didn’t take any pictures of this part, so see this Fox Hooded Towel Tutorial to see how I like to attach the hoods to the towels.
And that’s it! So fun and cute, right!? I think my kids will love it!
