What nifty towel ideas. I love it when something different inspires me.

I received your package YESTERDAY!!
THANK YOU (((((GIANT HUGS)))))

The ribbon and calendar are so vintage sweeet!

I opened the pretty box and the smell was perfect. WHAT A TREAT!
It really made my day :}

Those are pretty neat. The cannon shaped/folded towels remind me of the sort of designs cabin stewards make on cruise ships.

Cannons. Now why didn't I think of that?

I'm not sure whether I like the pic,the design or that Blanche lovingly saved the instructions for continued use!

I have to say I actually made many of these Cannon towel robes, jackets and even a shopping bag in the early 70's.

I made long and short robes, as well as some short jackets.

Thanks! These brought back some good old memories!! I believe I might even still have my 'paper bag pattern', now I'll have to check ;)
