|Garage Sale Gems: $3 (included another Hello Kitty Towel)|
While using the zig zag stitch from the lesson, I followed the Hooded Towel Tutorial from Making It Feel Like Home. Its simple, very basic, and didn't interfere with the Hello Kitty pic.
Another Hooded Towel Tutorial can be found at: Simple Bliss. From what I gathered from the photos, it looks like her tutorial offers the most "finished" look for the hood.
Here are the 3 sites/tutorials in order from easiest to hardest (in my novice-seamstress' opinion):
1. Making It Feel Like Home
2. Crazy Little Projects
3. Simple Bliss
With this success under my belt I'm ready to try another one...maybe an animal. :)
