I collected photos of as many cruise ship towel creations as I could find from the Royal Caribbean Facebook Group page after making a post asking folks to show me the various towel creations from their cruises. Some sailings actually offer classes in the art of towel origami.
I have purchased the following books on Amazon to start practicing and definitely plan to jump in on a class the next time I see one offered on board. I researched several and read many reviews before finally deciding on these. The first one is a spiral-bound book and is also available in a Kindle format (2006). The second by Carnival (I could not find one for Royal), it’s a bit pricey, but a nice hardback (no Kindle option), 2004. I could not find any recently published books on making these creations. I also came across a few YouTube video tutorials.
Since we often have overnight guests and entertain, I thought it might be fun to learn how to make some of these! I also think they would make fun wedding and bridal shower gifts or centerpieces! These might be a fun project to do with kids or grandkids too!
Of course, I didn’t have a single white towel to my name when I decided to start making these, so I had to order some up! I tried to find towels with only a small decorator stripe on them and of decent quality since in all likelihood, our guests will be using them! I also wanted some that weren’t super thick and hard to work with.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a towel animal, towel person, towel flower, towel cake photo for this blog! If you have one that isn’t shown, feel free to message or tag me on Facebook with a photo and I will add it here!
