Hooked on hooded towels at the moment. This design comes in 3 sizes, however I used the small size here. It is just one of the FREE designs from Appliquedownload. The design is very well digitized. I should have stitched it on another color towel. I was thinking the gray would be like the body of the coon, but now the face doesn't really show up well. The gray and black fabrics are fleece. The red and white are cottons.They also have a bug face and a school pencil, in multiple sizes in their free designs. I may do the bug face next..........Toogie- Edited-the link for the hooded towel instruction is below. I thought it went here, in edit, but it went as a comment. Guess I did it wrong when I added it, so scroll down for link.

Had to edit, so I could add the link for the hooded towel instructions.....So Kim, is this what those eight little girls will get next? I gave Ty his blue one yesterday for his b-day along with the Duck Dynasty pillowcase...He liked the towel best, I believe. Put it on his head and wrapped up in it. They would make nice christmas gifts, doesn't have to be only for the pool. Did you also pick up the free appliques or did you have them, already? I thought the pink inside the coons ears was pretty and the bug is so cute!

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 09 Oct 2014

Thanks, Toogie...I believe I just might do these for the kiddles...I still need to get the appliques...

toogie by toogie 09 Oct 2014

I thought about these for my bus kids, or the pillowcases, for christmas. Fortunately, I don't have a bus full!-lol

Looks great, I like how you did the appliqué leaving the fabric out in some places!

3 comments
toogie by toogie 08 Oct 2014

It may look like that, but actually the gray fleece I used, is almost the exact shade of the towel. The whole applique has other fabrics, some fleece, some cotton.

toogie by toogie 08 Oct 2014

Click on second photo, so it will enlarge and you can see the difference, in the grays.One thing I did do however. When I put the black fleece for the mask, I used a large enough black to cover the mask, eyes, nose. When it stitched the white, I trimmed around the white,but I didn't add more black for the next step for eyes and nose. It was already there with the mask. Does that make sense to you? I stitched the steps/thread colors satin stitch,but I didn't have to add little pieces for the black eyes and nose.
