HOW TO FOLD A SITTING TOWEL DOG
How to Fold a Sitting Towel Dog with Bagus of MSC Divina
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR MAKING A TOWEL DOG
1 Bath Towel
1 Hand Towel
Eyes – googly or felt or paper
How to Fold a Towel Dog Body
Fold bath towel in half across the short side. Lay flat and roll each side to the center from the edges of the long sides.
Keeping the rolled side facing up, fold about 1/3 of the front edge (the folded one) under.
Position the towel with the shorter rolls to the outside and the longer rolls coming over the top through the center. You may need to unroll the section underneath a bit to get the back legs to the outsides of the front legs.
How to fold a Towel Dog Head
Fold the hand towel in half across the short side. Tuck under about an inch or so of the folded edge.
Fold both ends of the unfolded edge over the top so it reaches the edge.
Put a finger in the center of the folded edge of the long side and bring the unfolded corners of one edge to the middle so it sits like a triangle. Move only the top 2 layers of towel with unfolded edges, leaving the part where the end is folded under where it is.
Repeat with the other side.
Roll one side, then the other to the center, keeping the rolls as tight as you can.
If you can’t get the rolls tight enough for the head to stay together on its own, put a rubber band under the first inch or so fold.
Pull the top bits on both sides to tighten up the rolls. Leave the back flap of each side for an ear and pull the front one tight and tuck it underneath the initial inch or so fold. Shape the ears and nose as desired. Set the head on the body and decorate with eyes and nose.
Optional Washcloth Tail
To add a tail to your dog, fold a washcloth in half diagonally.
Roll all the way around starting from the center and one edge.
Tuck tail in between leg rolls at the back of the dog.
