We have huge amount of towels, I have tried to reduce their number by donating the not so nice ones and making rags of the really worn ones, but still we have too many. For the kid I made hooded towels from our own towels. I took three towels from the closet and cut from each of them a big square piece and one triangle. I first made the regular white one from a towel we have apparently stolen from a cruise ship (ups, sorry). It had the shipping company's logos on it and it was bit embarrassing to use. I cut off the logos and made the hooded towel from the rest. I used an bias tape on all the edges. I did want to use some other colour, but the brown was the only one I had enough of.
The white was a bit of a practice towel but the next ones I made funnier. In a book Strömsö there is a towel made for much bigger child, it's a orange towel with pointy ears and a white tail, the towel is like a fox. So from that I got the idea of making other animal towels. First I chose to make a frog from a green towel we had. The green towel had a pair from a light blue towel and since I did not want to leave that without a match I wanted to use the blue towel as well. I had bit of trouble figuring what character to make from the blue one, but I chose to make a shark from it. I think the towels turned out super cute and fun.
There could have been so many options on what characters or animals I could have made from different coloured towels. I was also thinking of making some kind of monster from a lilac towel, but how many hooded towels does a kid need!
