If you read my book reviews you might remember that I mentioned that I read The Art of Invisibility and consider it the most important book that I've read this year. I decided that all of my friends are getting it for Christmas this year. Maybe a few of them will actually read it!
But just in case they are disappointed with the book I thought it might be a good idea to wrap it in something hand made.....or at least dyed. That something turned out to be tea towels. The photo above is how I folded them.
Well, after the first dye I thought they were kind of bland so I refolded, clamped and dyed them again. I like them much better now!
I wrapped them around the books to be the wrapping paper. They are tied with the string that I use in shibori dyeing. Ahhh, what synergy!
Here they are wrapped and ready for last night's delivery. At least I know they like and will use the towels!
