Yoda Hooded Towel

Yoda Hooded Towel at DoingSplendid.comI 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. 🙂

Yoda Hooded Towel at DoingSplendid.com 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.

When you are all finished sewing the ears on, it will look something like this.
