Have you seen the precious hooded towels made by your embroidery peers in a Facebook group or shown off by a digitizer trying to sell you their cute design? Have you ever thought, “Of course theirs looks like that. I could never make one of those!”

Dinosaur applique is here.
Christmas hooded towel set is here.
Edge alphabet applique set is here.

I have great news for you. With a basic applique design (advertised as a “hooded towel” or “edge” design is best but any applique will work!) and the ability to sew two straight lines on a sewing machine, you can make a hooded towel! I made this tutorial video to help guide you along the way. Please leave a comment on the video or this blog and let me know how you fared!
