How to Fold a Towel Bear, Penguin, and Elephant

Towel animals are often a joyful sight in luxury hotels, spas, and even cruise ship cabins, where they are considered a tradition of the turndown service. An uplifting reminder of more fun times, these fluffy masterpieces can be recreated at home with some patience and folding techniques reminiscent of origami. We had a go and transformed our Sunday Towels into an adorable trio consisting of a bear, baby penguin, and elephant. Scroll to the end for the set of tried and tested instructions!
