Around Christmas time, my choir director had a little soiree at her house. It was b-e-a-utiful. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house–does this include stealing ideas?! She had these towels in one of her bathrooms that I absolutely fell in love with (not ending sentences with prepositions is much harder than it sounds). My upstairs bathroom (the one guests use) was leaving a lot to be desired and I figured fancy towels would be a nice (free) way to make it look a little nicer for guests. I Google everything. Everything. Finding a fancy-towel-folding tutorial was a lot harder than I anticipated, but I found one here, at the Red Chair Blog and was so inspired I decided to do my own little tutorial. I’m not exactly clear yet on proper blogging etiquette (yes, there is blogging etiquette), so I hope I’m not stepping on anyone’s toesies (tow-zees).
Ha! I went to hang my bath towel up and this is what I was greeted with upon returning :) Get your dog out of the way and start with your hand towel face up (tag side down). Obviously, if you’ve removed the tag and there isn’t a design, it doesn’t really matter.
Take the top of the part you just folded UP and fold it back DOWN on top of itself. You may have to adjust the length of the initial fold UP in order to achieve this look. You don’t want this fold to be half way up the towel or it won’t be long enough to hang over something.
The pocket! Over half way now! Take a little break and give yourself a pat on the back. Envision all the happy memories you’re going to have walking into your bathroom and seeing the masterpiece you’ve created.
So, give it a try. If you have a dedicated guest bathroom (this is not dedicated), you could even put travel sized shampoo and soap in there. A ‘welcome to our bathroom’ card detailing where everything can be found, whatever. The possibilities are endless.
