My kids were each given a fuzzy hooded towel with adorable animal faces, ears, paws and tails. Such cuteness! The towels were 100% polyester. Wha...?! Since when does polyester absorb moisture? Isn't that the point of a towel?
Luckily these towels were perfect candidates for making toddler hats with faces and ears and matching scarves with paws!
These things just crack me up! They'll be gifts for other little ones we know which is why the white one is small for my guy.
I give full instructions in this post on my blog, but in a nutshell I used a hat that fits to cut out and sew the flattened hood into the right shape and size.
Then I cut off the paws, cut the towel into two strips, and sewed them together with the paws at the end.
There you have cute little hat and scarf sets, a sort of animal (and kid!) friendly callback to fur caps and stoles.
And your kid will feel like he's dressing up for Halloween every day! What fun!
