Kids Hooded Towels and the First Giveaway!

We have an {unnatural} fascination with monkeys around my house. We simply love them! And, now that the little one is getting bigger, the old hooded baby towels just are not enough to keep the munchkin warm after we get him out of the tub. When I saw this tutorial, I thought, I need to make one of those! However, nothing around our house can be left plain. Especially when it can be made into a monkey! I give you, the Monkey Hooded Towel....


Noah really seems to like it, but, then again, he likes anything that has to do with monkeys and bathtime.


The finished size is 30" x 54" - perfect size for any child {or child-at-heart}. My favorite part of the monkey towel is the tail!


Create a link on your blog for a chance to win a Monkey Hooded Towel! If you would like a chance to win a monkey hooded towel, create a link back to this post. If you do not have a blog, you can still enter by joining the group "Green Akers Creations" on Facebook. Simply join the group, post a note about the giveaway on your profile {a sample note is on the discussion board}, and "share" it with me. {More detailed directions are on the discussion board of the group.} Feel free to enter twice if you have a blog and a Facebook account. If the winner also leaves a comment, I'll send a matching wash-mitt as well!








Links and comments must be made by Friday, January 23 at midnight PST. Winner will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday, January 24th. Good luck!






{If you are unsure how to create a link, simply copy and paste the following into your post: Monkey Hooded Towel Giveaway }

I put the link on my blog. I am too computer/blog stupid to figure out how to link it. I'll keep trying though. You are way too talented. I'm jealous.

I know I'm way too late for the giveaway, but wanted to tell you how much I'm enjoying this blog. I googled monkey towel & ended up here! I just made one for my son. It's a hooded poncho, so a little different from this one, but I appreciated the inspiration. Now have several other projects in mind from reading here - thanks!
