Ninja Turtle Hooded Towel Tutorial

Ninja Turtle Hooded Towel Tutorial at DoingSplendid.comWhen my husband was a little boy he loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Scott, his brother, and all the neighbor kids would jump on the trampoline pretending to be the Ninja Turtles. It is quite a fond memory, so of course his love for the Ninja Turtles has rubbed off on our sons. I decided to make this Ninja Turtle Hooded Towel for my nine-year-old son for Christmas and he absolutely loves it!

Compared to the construction of other hooded towels, this one is pretty simple. There have been other Ninja Turtle Hooded Towel tutorials, like this one from Crazy Little Projects, but this is my take on it and I think it turned out pretty cute. So let’s get things started…COWABUNGA!

First of all, gather all your materials. For this hooded towel you will need:

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.
