This watchful beekeeper always takes good care of his bee colony. He wears a sting-resistant suit (actually a pair of painter's coveralls, available at hardware stores), work gloves to protect his hands, and a long tulle veil to guard his face. Dozens of "bees" are glued to the open-mesh netting; others buzz around his wide-brimmed straw hat. The stenciled bucket becomes a winsome receptacle for Halloween treats.

Some tea towels are too lovely to be hidden away in kitchen drawers. That's why using these linens to create pillow shams is such a wonderful idea. The tea towels are just the right size to cover a boudoir pillow, but since the fabric designs are unusual, the pillows add a very special touch to a bed or sofa.
Tea towel approximately 16 by 29 inches (If towel is smaller, use a narrower seam allowance; if it's larger, cut to size, and hem long ends.)
