For my nephew last year for Christmas, I made him at least two, I think. And for our son for Christmas this year, I made him two. Our daughter's original towel is made with a ribbon around the hood, which is how I made our little girl's extra two and my nephew's. My poor son does not have his decorated at all, so I'll have to work on that! My best friend from college just had a baby!! And I thought, I'll make her one for her little one. I decided to try my hand at lettering, and no I do not have an embroidery machine. I think the last time I did lettering was in Middle School and made a FMS pennant. My pennant was made with felt and did not move, so I tried just fabric and I struggled and tried to give up, but I think it turned out nice. I know it's not perfect and I have a lot to learn! Next time I may use fleece instead, as I am afraid my lettering will fray, sorry Kel! Here's a photo of my hooded towel for my sweet friend Kel and my "niece" Ava!
Disclaimer: I realize my lines are not near straight, but I am learning and trying! I just hope she enjoys it as something of her own! If you or anyone would be interested in a hooded towel, I enjoy making them and would love to share with you too! Just let me know!
