I made 12 dish towels before I remembered to add twill tape for hanging them from a hook. Unfortunately, only 4 towels managed to get this little professional-looking touch. Oops.
While I had the sewing machine out with various colors of thread inserted, I decided to try making some ribbon headbands. I found the idea in this book and decided to run with it. Back in the 1990s, I was big into hair ribbons. I loved them, and I still have my (large) collection. I took a few of those ribbons that were simply taking up space and made them into these:
If you look carefully, you'll see that I didn't do an extraordinary job in sewing them. Nor did I bother with perfectly matching thread. The messy sewn parts wind up being hidden under the hair, so I decided it didn't matter if it looked neat and perfect. The buttons came from my enormous stash of buttons that are mostly the extras that come with new clothing. Some of the clothes that go with the buttons in my stash have been gone for years.
