"Towel origami" is the art of folding towels into interesting shapes. Towel origami is often seen at resort hotels and on cruise ships. Many towel origami shapes are twisted and folded into animal shapes. Towel bunnies are one towel origami design that is easy to make. There are two ways to make towel bunnies: one method uses multiple towels and the other method uses a single towel to complete the bunny shape.
Roll two hand towels lengthwise into tight rolls. Set the towels aside for now.
Fold a bath towel into quarters. Roll the towel into a tube shape starting from the loose side and rolling toward the folded side.
Reach inside the top of the tube and pull out two towel corners. Fluff the corners to make the bunny's ears.
Wrap the two hand towels around the body of the bath towel to give the bunny arms and legs. Place eye and mouth stickers on the bunny to complete the look.
Roll a towel diagonally from the top right corner down to the bottom left corner. Fold the tube in half.
Fold the tube in half again. Wrap a rubber band around the second fold to make a head for the bunny. You can also use string if the rubber band is too small.
Stick eye and mouth stickers on the rubber-banded side of the towel to make a face for the rabbit. Place a fluffy pom-pom on the other side of the bunny for a tail.
