Not quilted - but a sewing project

A friend wanted a hooded bath towel for her grandson and couldn't find anything that was trimmed with puppies, so I offered to give it a try. Looked online at several tutorials and this is what I came up with. It is really hard to sew through several layers of a thick bath towel!

Since they live in California, I can't have him model. I hope it will last for years to come. It is really hard to take a picture of a hooded item!

Very cute! He is sure to love it! You did a great job in the design & execution.

This is not the same -- but since you are sewing for babies, look at the link below for the most adorable & quick (maybe :~) cuddle blanket for a small child. I've had this saved for years.

I love Heirloom Creations - Sara is so informative. I've spoken to her and purchased from them.

Back to your Puppies towel -- I love it!

Very cute towel. I loved hooded towels for my little ones. The critter blanket is so creative. I've bookmarked that one. No babies for anyone I know on the horizon, but I'm sure there will be sooner or later.

Marsha - the critter blanket is adorable! I will have to keep that one in mind for the future. I am hopeful I will be a grandma in the next few years - I'm not rushing it - they just got married - but I am going to start stockpiling ideas.
