Today I learned how to make animals out of towels.
I've been on a few cruises, and I always looked forward to seeing what and where our bath towels would be. The cabin stewards made great-looking animals, often incorporating things they found laying around the cabin. Once they used a pair of sunglasses and gave the animal "eyes". Most of the time the towel animals would be on the bed, but occasionally they'd be hanging from a towel rack or hanger, or laying on a shelf in the closet.
wikiHow had tutorials on making an elephant, monkey, cat, lobster, swan, or dog. Some of the animals took more towels than I had available, so I decided to make a swan and a dog.
The swan used just one towel:
The dog was made from one bath and one hand towel. My hand towel was printed on one side, so you can see a bit of the color peeking out:
It took me a while to get the hang of this. It was hard to roll the towels tightly and keep them folded when they were supposed to be. I guess those cabin stewards have a lot of practice to do such a good job!
