I then went home and grabbed my small remaining stash of vintage 1940’s scraps and created a few yo~yo’s. (If you don’t know how to make a yo~yo, Heather Bailey has a great tutorial.) I also sorted through my vintage trims and selected a few quaint buttons. You certainly could use new fabric, trim and buttons, but this was a great way to use what I had on hand.
After creating the yo~yo’s I then took a sweet button and hand sewed each button and yo~yo onto the front of the towel.
I then added a coordinating series of trims onto the hem of the towel with my sewing machine. I think they turned out pretty cute!
For those of you who don’t sew, I have stacks of towels that I am currently working on. I have already added several to my Etsy shop.
What have you created from a Dollar Store find?
