How to Make a Towel Bat

Difficulty: Medium

Materials:

  • 1 hand towel
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 rubber band.

First we’ll make the body of the Bat. Roll the right side to the middle

Roll the left side to the middle

It should look like this:

Wrap the rubber band about half way down the two rolls you just made

Position the towel in your hand so the rolls are facing down

…and pull the flat side to meet the other flat side

Unroll the two rolls facing you so the towel looks like this when you flip it

…continue to unroll until you get the desired shape

Now we’ll make the head

Start with a ¼ fold as shown above, fold the two corners up so they look like the pictures below

Fold the remaining ¾ towards the original fold as shown below

Roll the right side to the middle

Roll the left side to the middle

…should look like this when you flip the washcloth over

Fold down the cuff at the top of the head

…should look like this

Keep a firm grip on the head as you tuck it into position, using the rubber band to hold it in place

That’s it! You’ve created a Bat that wont bite you
