Michigan Baby Towel

My cousin and his wife are getting ready for their first baby. They aren't finding out the sex though. Pretty sure I'd go crazy. I found out what both my children were...mainly because they looked like monkeys in the ultrasound and it freaked me out.

My cousin is a huge Michigan fan. Hence, the Michigan baby towel.

This was fun - but I'm not so good with the bias tape. Still need practice. All I did was take a regular sized towel and cut it to an even square. Then took the a hand towel and made a large triangle. I cut the "M" from a yellow hand towel then quasi-embroidered it on.

Sewed the yellow bias tape all around and voila! Fluffy towel for a boy or girl.

If your family and read the blog - sssssshhhhhh - don't let the cat out of the bag!
