Monster Hooded Towel
Totally not inventing the wheel here... but thanks to one of my favorite crafty bloggers I knew I'd have to give this a shot. I found some nice towels on sale at Bed Bath and Beyond a few days ago and was purposefully looking at the green ones since it's Z's favorite color. I had forgotten about the post Regina from Creative Kismet had done months ago but when I picked them up for some reason it was kinda like a thump on the forehead, *thunk* and brought it flooding back. It couldn't be more perfect with all the halloween crafting I've been doing too, fits right in.
Z likes it. Although, I think It needs a few modifications. The hood (made from a hand towel) is a bit too large and completely engulfs his head. I made some plain hooded towels with IKEA towels/handtowels and the proportions seem to be more user friendly. Plus, I'd like to embellish a little more by adding claws to the edges. Giving myself ideas... back to the drawing board!
