On our cruise on the MSC Divina, one of the stewards kindly allowed us to video him folding a variety of towel animals. Considering that Bagus was not our steward we greatly appreciated that he went above and beyond the call of duty to make these videos for this blog.
Most of the animals in this series from the Divina are easier to make than a lot of the animals featured on this blog so far, which is quite nice for new towel animal folders or those who have problems with the more difficult towel animals. First up we have a crocodile.
Supplies Needed to Make a Towel Crocodile
Two Hand Towels
One Bath Towel
Towel Crocodile Folding Instructions
How to Fold Towel Crocodile Legs
Lay one hand towel out flat. Fold over several inches across one short end.
From folded edge, roll towel to other end.
Bend rolled towel at the middle so it resembles a boomerang and set it down where you want one end of the crocodile to sit. Repeat with other towel and set parallel to first towel at the distance the hind legs go away from the front.
How to Fold Towel Crocodile Head and Body
Tuck center of one edge of long side of bath towel under your chin or hang it on a hook on the wall.
Roll both sides of towel to the center at an angle from where the towel hangs.
Set towel over legs, rolled side down. Leave enough of pointy end hanging over front set of legs for head.
Tuck the pointy end under to round off the end for the nose. If desired, arrange the back end into a tail shape.
Decorate with eyes, which can be bits of felt or paper or googly eyes. You can add further decorations such as nostrils if desired.
