Towel Art

Good morning,

Those of us who cruise know about the darling critters that stateroom attendants leave for us when they tidy up our staterooms.

The two swans above were made by our stateroom attendant, Diane, aboard Freedom of the Seas.
This hanging critter was made by Stateroom Attendant, Karen, for Catherine and Carol's stateroom.
The third one is also one of Karen's creatures.  This one is reading the daily Cruise Compass, surely looking for a fun activity for the evening.

There are many, many more critters made by the stateroom attendants.  The critters are so popular that there is even an activity on board where the art is taught by the attendants to guests.  Lots of cruising fun!

Enjoy,
Lois

Cute towel figures, Lois, and to think i was just folding them after laundering. Wonder how many to attend the towel art classes will follow through once home.

I've seen simpler versions of this, but these made me smile...I guess that's the objective of such, isn't it? Can you do this Lois? I may just try, but I doubt the outcome.

That's very clever towel work. What fun for the guests!

Oh, yes, I loved the towel creations when we went on our cruise. These are great, and I especially like the last one with the newspaper. Very creative!

I remember the towel critters on our cruise. I loved that third one Lois, reading the paper. Too cute!
Love Di ♥

Good morning,

No, I haven't mastered these yet, but there is a demo that I want to attend coming up soon. Maybe I'll be able to do that after I learn some of the secrets. ;) And, yes, the third one is my favorite, too.

I hope you're having fun cruising with us. Thanks so very much for stopping by.

Best,
Lois

That is so cool! My daughter had a opportunity to go with her host family on a cruise and she took pictures of the towel art too. I'd sure like to learn how to make those!
