Supplies Needed to Fold a Towel Squirrel
How to Fold a Washcloth Squirrel Head
For a video on how to fold the squirrel head, view the washcloth mouse because the mouse is used as the squirrel’s head.
Lay washcloth flat. Fold in half diagonally. Fold one corner to center of folded edge, followed by opposite corner.
Fold over long edge.
Fold washcloth in half. Bring tips of each of the corners out from under the folded edge for ears.
Fold top part down flush with sides.
Secure with rubber band. Shape ears, face, and eye spaces as desired. Add eyes. If you don’t have googly eyes you can make eyes from felt or paper.
How to Make a Towel Squirrel Body
The squirrel takes the standard towel animal body, only made with a hand towel instead of the usual bath towel.
Lay the hand towel out flat. Roll both ends from the short side to the center.
Fold rolled towel in half with rolls on the outside. Pull the tip out of the center of each roll.
Hold tips from both ends of one roll in one hand and both ends of the other roll in the other hand and pull all of them at once until rolls pull out into the four legs of an animal body.
How to Fold a Washcloth Squirrel Tail
Fold squirrel tail from a washcloth. Put a pipe cleaner on washcloth diagonally over one corner.
Fold one side of the washcloth triangularly over the pipe cleaner.
Fold other side and then fold again.
Assembling the Towel Squirrel
Put the head between the rolls of the body.
Bring squirrel into sitting position. Tuck wide end of tail into lower fold at back of body. Use the pipe cleaner to hold the tail up and make an arch to shape it into squirrel tail. If you really want to get creative you could add things like whiskers or claws.
