DIY Hooded Towel

My little boy is growing up too fast!  He's long outgrown the cute hooded towels I received for baby gifts.  Time to move to the jumbo-sized hooded towels!!

The finished towel.  Love it!

Hooded towels have been floating around Pinterest, and I found a lot of tutorials online, so I'll just include links to the sites I looked at:

(The Cottage Home tutorial is my personal favorite, I adore that cute ric-rac edging)

These 3 tutorials are all basically the same, I used bits of each one to know what I was doing.  I wanted to add them all here, so next time I make a hooded towel, I don't need to search all over the internet to find the same tutorials.

Anyway, I just wanted to add one quick little step to save you some time if you have the same problem that I ran into.

The ribbon I wanted to put on needed to be placed a certain direction so it looked just right when finished.  In case you have that same problem, here is a photo of the CORRECT way it should be sewn to the hand towel:

Place the ribbon toward the fold of the towel
