Step 1: Bath Towel

 Start with a large bath towel laying horizontally on the floor. Fold it into thirds and go hang it on your towel bar.

Step 2: Hand Towel Before the Flip

 Grab yourself a hand towel and lay it on a flat surface (i.e., the floor) lying face up (tag side down).

Fold the bottom about two-thirds of the way up.

Step 3: Flip and Fold, and Flip Again.

Flip the entire hand towel over now.
Fold the left and right side into toward each other, tucking the right side into the pocket on the left side.
Once you have a nice fold and everything tucked in nicely....
Flip the whole thing over again and marvel at the beautiful pocket you just made!

Step 4: Accordion Washcloth

 Remember the notebook paper fans you used to make in elementary school? Well, you're going to use that same technique on your washcloth. 

Start with the washcloth tag side UP. Fold in the tag a bit (bout an inch) and flip it over, fold an inch, flip it over, etc, until it looks like this.

Step 5: Finale

 Fold that accordion washcloth in half and tuck it into the pocket in your hand towel :)
