Hello fellow crafters!!  

I'm looking for help on how to construct a book I'm writing/making.  It's about a turtle & a caterpillar.  There will be three small accordian folded books.  And one crocheted turtle w/ caterpillar:


It will be in the shape of a turtle shell w/ four drawers around the shell--to hold each book & the toy.  You will be able to pull out the drawers to read the book inside.  Does this make sense??  I know how to make the books & the drawers.  I'm just not sure how to go about making the shell.  

Your wonderful ideas would be much appreciated!!   Thank you.

the army hat would be for the mold of the paper mache
to give it a round turtle shell like back

or you could probably try a balloon

oh, derrrrr!  i'm a bit slow!!  i was thinking of one of those cloth rectangle shaped hats--the ones that you can also origami fold.  i was really confused what i would be doing with that  Smiley  

that would actually work better cuz i need to have the bottom of the shell open, so i can make a floor support to hold the drawers.  it's also funny that i didn't catch onto the army hat cuz a kid once made a picture of a camo army hat for me & i turned it into a turtle.  he thought it was a cool idea.  we named it army turtle.
