How to Fold a Towel Bear
How to Fold the Towel Bear Body
Fold towel in half with the rolls to the outside. Pull the tips out of the end of each roll. I didn’t get a good picture of this step folding the bear, so I
stole borrowed a photo from the cat.
Grasp the two tips that are the ends of one roll in one hand and the two tips that are the ends of the other roll in the other hand.
Pull all four simultaneously until the rolled towel becomes four legs and a body.
How to Fold the Towel Bear Head
Fold hand towel in half across the short side.
Fold in half again.
Hold center down with a finger and fold each side down like a triangle.
Flip towel to other side and fold the center point over.
- Pick towel up and invert while folding in half.
Shape nose and ears as desired.
How to Assemble a Towel Bear
Place head between leg rolls of body.
Bring body up into sitting position. Position legs as desired.
Decorate with eyes and any other embellishments.
I used small googly eyes, bits of pipe cleaner for claws, and felt for the tongue on this bear.
Although the bear is the last animal from the Carnival Liberty series, I still have more animals to come. Next up is the penguin, inspired by a penguin Rosario, our steward on the Norwegian Pearl, folded for us.
