Dear Dog, Annie, has her own towel for wipe downs when she comes in after the rain or snow. She very patiently waits while I give her the once over..that is she continuously licks my face and ears, patiently.
The other day I came across another one of those, "Why didn't I think of that" in regards to Annie's towel. In fact, it's a forehead smacker.
Take a piece of toweling (an old towel) cut it down to 14 x 31". Finish the raw edges in whatever manner you desire. Fold in half lengthwise, sew across the short ends. Open it and you have a towel with pockets where you can put your hands to hold the towel while you wipe your pet down instead of trying to hold onto the towel itself.
This won't be as absorbent as their towel because I have no idea what their super absorbent micro fiber fabric is. But the toweling works just fine. And it won't cost you $20 plus shipping.
I know a few people I will be making these for! Myself included

What a great idea!!!! I have a wonderful neighbor who snowblows my driveway, and it is impossible to get him a gift. He has 2 Jack Russell terriers, and this would be a terrific gift he wouldn't refuse. Thank You!
My only comment is I prefer to leave my fabrics square when sewing round shapes and then cut after sewing. Seems easier to me to control my fabrics. Just me.This message has been edited. Last edited by: paus4quilts,
