Hooded Bath Towels w/Cricut Appliques

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! I'm not feeling so well today, so needless to say it's 10am and the only thing I've gotten accomplished is a shower and a bowl of cereal. haha. So I thought I'd at least post these hooded bath towels that my mom and I made last week. She was creating these for my cousin who just had a baby and she used a regular size bath towel and a hand towel sewed together, but she wanted to add a cute applique to the hood. So I told her instead of going to a craft store or a sewing store and spending a bunch on appliques, we could make our own! So we cut these cuties using the Cricut! Then she used a tight zig-zag stitch to make sure that they didn't go anywhere after washing several times. We still used the Wonder Under and ironed them on, but the stitching gave them a more finished/professional look. I attached the googly eyes with Fabri-Tac. If you don't already have these svg files, look below for the links.
