Towel pets are often popular on cruise travel and B & Bs (a high-end European budget hotel chain) to make your stay unforgettable. Undoubtedly, seeing such a thing, for example, in the guest bathroom, you will be amazed! To fold a towel swan, follow these guidelines.
Step 1. Place a bath towel on a flat surface
Be sure to position it in landscape orientation as shown below.
Step 2. Fold the top two corners down and in so that they meet in the center
Note that since this is not a perfect square, they will not line up with the bottom edge of the towel.
Step 3. Roll the two outer edges inward towards the center
As a result, the shape should look like an arrow pointing up.
Step 4. Fold the resulting arrow into a "Z" shape
Make sure the bottom two arrow points end at the bottom of the “Z” and at the top point at the top.
Step 5. Position the towel in the "Z" shape and squeeze the corners to form the curved pieces
The Z should now look like a swan.
Step 6. Repeat these steps if you want to make a pair of swan, matching the necks of which, you can get a heart
- If you are making a pair of swans, make sure your towels are of equal thickness and size for a flawless result.
- You can make little swan babies out of hand towels. Try to make a swan family out of towels!
- You can add tails to your swans. A simple “paper fan” made from a disposable hand towel works very well for this - or you can make a triangular shape from a body towel and a hand towel by folding two corners. Fold one corner down a little so that it is squeezed under the whole body of the swan. By placing these towels on the back of the swan (from the back), you will make him wings and at the same time prevent him from falling.
- If you want to make “12 days of Christmas” for someone, then you can make a lot of swans called “7 Swimming Swans”. Place 7 white bath towels in the bathroom and fold them into swans. For extra beauty, place a few hand towels underneath while the water underneath is light blue.
