So suddenly I had a better idea... completely out of the box - I cut 8" squares from the wash cloths then pieced them all together, pre-washed the now patch work towel, and used some pink flannel (also pre washed, 7$ from Walmart) and backed it, added a hood face and ears.... I hand stitched the face with colour-fast thread and made the ears stand up (kinda) with interfacing - Voila Piggy cuteness. (sorry about picture quality, I forgot to do pics before I wrapped it)
It's a little big for a 7-8mo old but he will grow in to it... and Kevin was sweet enough to show what it looks like on a full size head.... what a good man!
There's more than one way to sew a hooded towel.... Get creative!
