Cut a strip of heavy cardboard to fit, and slip it inside Rack. Sew bone rings to top edge, ½ in. from each end. Screw the smallest size cup hooks through crochet into cardboard, one at each end—about 1 in. from end. Sew a bone ring to top corner of each holder.

If desired, the back of the holders may be lined for appearance, and for a more tailored effect. Cut a piece of flannel just smaller than the holders; place on back—then line with muslin.
