This hooded towel is probably my most popular request from readers, so I hope I make at least a few people happy with this! I admit that making a Hello Kitty hooded towel seemed daunting to me at first. But in the end this towel was super easy to make and I LOVE how it turned out. I give you a Hello Kitty Hooded Towel Tutorial:
Your little girl will love this! (And yes, I did make my little boy model this. What are you supposed to do when you have no little girls handy and you are in a time crunch?!) It will look even cuter on your GIRL!

As always with my hooded towel tutorials, this tutorial will be simply how to make the Hello Kitty face. To make the full hooded towel I refer you to this post that teaches you to make a basic hooded towel.
Cut your hand towel in half horizontally.
Fold under the selvaged (uncut) edge about 3-4 inches and sew it in place. This just make the towel a little smaller on little one’s head.
Cut 4 pieces for the ears. Place two together, sew around the edges leaving the bottom open and turn right side out.
Cut out eye pieces and nose from your black and yellow fabric. Cut matching pieces from your Heat n Bond.
Place all face pieces on the hand towel and decide where you want them positioned. Iron the eyes and nose in place.
Now using an appliqué stitch (tight zigzag), stitch around the eyes and nose. Then create 3 whiskers going out from the nose. To do these sew forward several inches with your zigzag and then back over top of that.
Cut a slit about 1 inch long in each of the spots where you want the ears.
Stuff an ear down into each hole. On the underside sew the hole closed catching the ear and both sides of the hole. (So yes, you are going to be sewing through all kinds of bulk here, so be careful.)
Now your face is done. Fold it in on itself and stitch up the back with a zigzag:
Then fold it like this and sew across the top and snip it off:
Add the head to the towel using this tutorial and you are set!
