Using the "left over" that was just cut off in the previous step do the same thing. This will leave you with a small square that you will use to make the hood part.
Cut along the crease so that you have 2 triangles.
I appliqued two eyes and a beak.
Sew binding to the bottom of the "face"
Place the triangle piece with the "face" on top of the large square in one of its corners right sides together.
I rounded the point using a roll of tape.
Sew around the 2 outside edges of the small triangle- make sure you sew around the curve you drew. Trim the extra fabric.
Turn rightside out. You can see the roll of tape I used to round the top.
I didn't like all the corners so I chose to round off the bottom corner. As you can see I used the Bumbo seat- but you could use a medium sized trash can, bucket or leave it square.
I made a couple feet from some scraps of fabric. I drew a template on freezer paper cut out 4 pieces (2 per foot) and sewed them together. Then turn them rightside out.
Then I sewed the binding aroung the rest of the towel making sure to sew the feet into the binding. I am not a pro at binding so I won't go into detail about how to do that since it won't be right.
Then using the remaining remnant from the original towel and another scrap I bought the day before in the scrap bin at Joann's I made a burp cloth to go along with this towel.
The finished gift
