Carnival Towel Creations

11 Jul

carnivaltowelcreationsI just came across this book. I’ve never been on a Carnival cruise so I didn’t know that they made towel animals. How cute! This book has 40 designs from elephants to cobras to monkeys. Each design has easy to follow instructions. I think I could even make these. 

My copy sold but it’s for sale on Amazon.

Protect Books from Dust

To protect books from dust, crisp lengths of linen can be hung from shelves. The technique, used in old Swedish libraries, also gives a neat appearance to uneven volumes. To make, measure the length of the shelf, and the distance from the shelf above to the top of the shortest book. Add 1 inch to all sides; cut prewashed linen to this size. Hem bottom and sides by 1 inch. Sew 1-inch-wide twill tape to top edge. Fasten to underside of shelf every 6 inches with upholsterers’ tacks or a strip of Velcro.
