I'm featuring another crafty family post today. This time from my mother-in-law. She made these adorable hooded towels for Penny and her cousins. I think she used a full-size towel and a coordinating handtowel for each one, and then added her own creative embellishments.
I especially love the bunny (I think because it's pink), but the monkey is so sweet also. Penny loves to sign monkey and say "ee ee!"
The hood of the pink one is fully lined, and the back has this pleat to make it wrap nicely around little bodies.
Nana made a princess one for Penny's older girl cousin, and I'm not sure what animals for the boys. It is hard to find hooded towels for after the baby stage, and these are full-sized towels, which are perfect for toddlers and older kids.
Here are a few tutorials online if you want to try to make some like these. The first one looks the most similar to Penny's.
