Towel Art Tuesday: How to fold a towel turtle
Towel art, also known as towel folding and towel origami, is a great way to add a fun touch to your guest rooms. Simple but effective, creating towel animals such as turtles, elephants or even yule logs, can be made in as little as two minutes but are guaranteed to make your guests' stay extra special.
This Towel Art Tuesday will demonstrate just how quick and simple it is to make a towel turtle with a face cloth, hand towel and bath towel. We decided to create Terry the towel turtle with our mocha and latte towels, though you can use any colour you wish.

For the shell:
Step 1: Lay out the bath towel longways and begin rolling the two ends inwards until you reach the middle
Step 2: Flip the two rolls over and fold the towel into thirds
Step 3: Flip the towel over once again and pull the two rolls apart to create the towel shell
Step 4: Set the bath towel aside
For the body:
Step 1: Lay out the hand towel longways and roll the two ends inwards, as you did with the bath towel
Step 2: Fold the two rolls in half to create four 'legs'
Step 3: Pull out the ends of each roll
Step 4: Holding two rolls in each hand, pull the towel apart to create the body
For the face:
Step 1: Fold the face cloth in half diagonally to create a triangle
Step 2: Fold the two ends inwards until you create a point
Step 3: Pop the face cloth in between two of the 'legs' and add the shell on top
Voila, you have a towel turtle!
