I’ve got a lot of hits on my towel bear blog recently, and I think what people are actually looking for is this towel teddy bear, so to give people what they want, here it is. This is not my creation and the video is in Spanish because it came from what I am guessing is the creator of the one towel teddy bear.

Towel Teddy Bear Folding Instructions
Lay towel out flat. Fold over 1/3 of the towel from a short end.
Roll each side to the center on the long sides.
Turn towel over so the rolled end is underneath.
Twist the end with the folded edge halfway around so the rolls on that end are on top. These are the legs.
Fold over the other end across the short side and put the rolled ends on either side of the other rolls. These are the arms so you do not want them all the way down to the end of the legs.
Push the arms off to the sides of the bear. Unroll top edge above the arm part so there are no rolls left over top of the leg rolls, just smooth towel between the arms.
Gather in the neck area and place a large rubber band around it.
Use small rubber bands to turn the side rolls on the head part into ears.
In the video she puts an additional large rubber band around the neck before tying on the ribbon, but I’m not sure what the purpose of that was as it does not seem necessary. I ran the ribbon over the front of the neck and wrapped it around rather than just setting it across the back and tying it over the front for better rubber band coverage and did not use the extra rubber band on the neck.
It’s done per the video once you tie the ribbon on, but I added googly eyes and a black felt nose. A little double-stick tape holds the face on. I like it better with a face, but it’s optional.
