Pink Teddy Bear Hooded Towel

Pink Teddy Bear Hooded Towel at DoingSplendid.comI have made lots of hooded towels over the years, but they are still my very favorite gift to give to a new baby. I made this sweet, Pink Teddy Bear Hooded Towel for a friend’s new baby and I think it turned out cute, which all hooded towels seem to turn out being. Especially, when they’re worn by a cute kiddo! It can’t get much cuter than that!

If you want to make a cute towel of your own, this is how to do it.

Materials Needed:

The first thing you want to do is cut your pink hand towel in half. One half will be used for the hood part of the towel and the other half will be used for the ears and snout. Then cut out all of your pattern pieces.  Before cutting out your eye pieces, nose, and inner ear pieces attach the fabric scraps to the Heat’n Bond (according to the package instructions), trace the pattern onto the paper side of the Heat’n Bond, and then cut. This will make it so all those pieces can adhere to the towel before you sew them on. Here are all of my pieces laid out on the hood piece of the hand towel.

Now put the ear pieces and the snout pieces together as shown and sew around the curved part of the ears and snout, leaving the straight edge open.

Pin all around the hood, making a little fold a few inches from the edge of the hood, which you can see in the picture below. Then sew all around.
