I appliqued the dog and sewed on the ric rac leash to the back of the towel. There is still a little stabilizer on the towel. I've got to clean up this little pooch before I ship her off to her new home!
All of my kids have these, and their ages range from six months to eight years old. They love them, and I love how I can wrap my youngest two up and carry them to their rooms without ending up looking like I am the one that had the bath!
