Penguin Hooded Towel

I know I know, I dissapeared for almost 2 weeks again.  Sorry!  Life seems to keep getting the better of me and I haven't had much energy for baking or crafting.  Or writing posts.  Hopefully things will turn around soon!  I have some pretty awesome ideas that I want to share with you this month!
So here we go.  Two weeks ago, the LadyBug hooded towel was so cute, I decided to make another one for my next baby shower (yep, seriously - I have like five friends/coworkers/family members who are all due the last week of November or first week of December).  It's crazy.  And it also means lots of baby showers for me.
So for the next baby shower I went to, I wanted to make a hooded towel, but this couple isn't finding out if they are having a girl or boy, so I needed gender neutral.  Plus they were have a jungle/animal theme and the penguin fit right in in my mind (although, looking back now, I suppose there aren't any penguins in the jungle, oh well - it was still cute!)
My second attempt at a hooded towel went SO much more smoothly than my first.  This one took around 2 hours to complete.  I think the fact that I knew how to assemble it and didn't have to check the directions more than 15 times helped.  The lack of having to appliqué on any ladybug spots was also a huge time saver.
This pattern also comes from CrazyLittleProjects.  It's super simple and I am so happy with how it turned out!
I have one more hooded towel up my sleeve, although I might not be able to share it with you until after Thanksgiving.
Have a great day!
