We have a sweet new baby in our family and there’s no better way to celebrate than by making a darling hooded towel! Surprise Staci! Don’t tell baby Sawyer…I’m sending it soon! I put together this little Panda Hooded Towel Tutorial for anyone who wants to make one too!
A couple of weeks ago, my family and I went to see the new Kung Fu Panda movie and ever since, my kids have been on a panda and Kung Fu kick! 🙂 So, of course, we had to try out a panda hooded towel and I think it turned out super cute! Here’s how to make one:
Panda Hooded Towel Tutorial
- 1 white bath towel
- 1 white hand towel
- 1 black washcloth
- scaps of white and black fabric
- Thermoweb Heat’n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive-17″X45″ (affiliate link)
- white and black thread
- sewing machine
- Panda Hooded Towel Pattern Pieces
First of all, cut your white hand towel like the picture below. one piece will be for the hood of the towel and the other piece will be used for the snout of the panda.
…and from pieces of towel fabric. Attach the Heat’n Bond to the fabric pieces according to the package directions.
Now all we have to do is attach the hood to the the towel. Line up the center of the hood with the center of the towel and pin. Pin all along the edge of the hood. About an inch from each end of the hood you can see where I added a little fold in the towel. This is to help the towel stay on the little one’s head a little bit better. Then just sew along the pinned edge.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
