One will be the body of the towel and the other one you will cut up for the head and eyes of the frog. Cut out 2 half circles for the frog's head, four almost circles (flat bottom) for eyes and two white and two smaller black felt circles for the eyes. Layer your felt circles on one of the eye circles and sew as shown in red above. Sew all along the outer edge of the inside out eye except for the bottom so that you can turn it right side out.

Cut along this curve, then separate the towel into two pieces by cutting along the fold.

Now we’ll make the scales for the hood. Then cut out the zig-zags, keeping the bottom inch of fabric intact so you have a long strip. Lay down one piece of your hood, and line up the scales along the curved edge. Nap Time Crafters: Duck Towel Tutorial. I LOVE hooded towels but those cute baby ones just don’t last very long.
