Towel days of summer

All right, so this is not a remnant project, but I did get a cheap deal on towels at K-Mart, earlier this year: they were 2 for $5 for the bath towels! You will also need 1/2 of a hand towel for each hoodie.
I found this project on the DIY Dish website last year (the episode June 24, 2010 to be exact), and I made 13 of them last year! When I visit the homes of the kids I made hoodies for last year, I almost always see them hanging in the bathroom because they get lots of use and they hold up well, for the most part (I did see one that looked mended!) This year I am planning to make 14!
The towel hoodie is so easy to make, no kidding! Check out the link and make something a kid will love.


Some of the designs I used came from and some came with my machine software (Husqvarna Viking). I used Sulky and Robison-Anton rayon embroidery thread.
As you can see, I injured myself, which cuts down on the manual dexterity a bit. Not a sewing accident but a kitchen mishap. That’s what I get for trying to cook again! Haven’t attempted knitting yet.
