Supplies Needed to Make a Towel Cat
1. Bath Towel
2. Hand Towel
4. Decorations desired: eyes, nose, whiskers, collar, etc. Bits of paper, cloth, or felt work for eyes and nose. Pipe cleaners or stiff strings make good whiskers. Googly eyes always work too if you have them.
How To Fold a Towel Cat
How to Make a Towel Cat Body
Roll both ends of the bath towel to the center from the short ends.
Fold in half, with the rolls to the outside.
Pull the tips out of the end of each roll.
Pull on the tips of all four rolls until the towel pulls out into a body with four legs.
How to Make a Towel Cat Head
Use the hand towel to make the cat’s head. Hang the center of one long side of the towel from a peg on the wall, or tuck it under your chin.
Roll both sides tightly to the center so that the part on the peg becomes a point.
Cross the ends of the towel at the wide end so that as much sticks out on either side as you want the length of the cat’s ears to be.
Roll starting from the wide end, with the flat part to the inside and the rolled part to the outside.
Tuck the tip in between the rolls and shape the ears as desired.
How to Make a Washcloth Cat Tail
Pin down one corner of the washcloth with a finger.
While holding that corner down, roll from the adjacent corner and keep rolling until the entire washcloth becomes one roll with a wide end and a pointy end.
How to Assemble the Towel Cat
Place the head on top of the front legs, positioning head and legs as desired.
Tuck tail under middle of roll where the back legs are and position as desired,
Add eyes and any other embellishments you want, such as nose and whiskers.
