I've been asking the same question, ever since I checked out this book from the library. It's called Gifts Kids Can Make. I learned how to make a bunny out of it. So maybe if you'd like to learn something because you're waiting for instructions for the dog, you could see if the author has a website and make one from there. The bunny is very easy, took me less than 10 minutes.
Good luck. :)

The Book onboard is $12.95 - on ebay it is a minimum of $20 PLUS shipping BUT Carnival ONLY sells it onboard to passengers.... so factor in the cost of the cruise... When I was on a Carnival Ship I was told the book was NOT available, try taking ANOTHER CRUISE..... good luck

I also suggest the towel folding DVDs mentioned below. Have both volumes and love them. Was able to make all the things on there without any trouble. He gives great ideas on the first volume as far as what towels to buy, etc. Hope this helps!

That brings back memories, there was a nice restaurant in Key West were a waiter made me a napkin rabbit when I was 4 or 5 years old.....never thought about it until I saw this post...thanks!

read in the paper today about the towel animals...HOWEVER, was considering it as a gift for a 9 year old and the 'review' that suggested I needed to learn 'martian' before reading the book put me off...I can't even find the pause button on my DVD player....anyone else have first hand esperience with Towel Creations? siampayne AT hotmail.com

By Carol Stanton (Guest Post)04/21/2006

If you still want the book after reading about it in prior comments, there are 4 currently available on eBay. Search for "Carnival Towel Creations".

I have the book from Carnival on Towel creations. It is the worst book ever published. They show some really neat creations but the instructions would be clearer if they were written in Martian and illustrated by someone from Venus. I have literally spent hours trying to decipher what they are trying to say. Don't even think of buying the book unless you have the patience of Job and are not prone to high blood pressure!

I am trying to find out some information on how to make different animals out of dish towels. Example, someone had made a bunny out of two or three dish towels and I have seen a dog or a pig made out of dish towels on a cruise commerical. Does anyone know where I can get the directions? Thanks!

Hello! My name is Dave and I am from downtown Chicago. I too was curious as to how to make these animals. I saw a dog towel tonight on a carnival cruise ship commercial and so I went to their website. If you want to buy the book on how to make all sorts of different wildlife and domestic animals. It is $12.95 and all you have to do is call 1 888 C A R N I V A L. Have a good one Jane. Cheers!

I just got back from a Carnival cruise and forgot to get the animal towel book. I called to get a copy of it, but unfortunately they don't sell them after the cruise.

Previous feedback about towel animals.....

It's till listed as Al's Towel Animals-just pictures no instructions...but once your rolling towels it shouldn't be hard to figure out by looking at the pictures.
