Towel peg labels

There are four of us in the house, so I've been meaning to do this for a long time, and it was just a matter of getting my act together. I freehanded the letters, stitched them--with raw edges showing and everything—to four-inch squares of oatmeal linen, and then punched an eyelet into the top so they can hang on a nail. You wouldn't believe the drama that followed. Nobody wanted to hang their towel in the corner, some felt the letters should spell a funny word, and there was a strong argument for having them in boy/girl order. So it's a good thing they can be rearranged as our whims dictate.

Aren't they cute? Now I want to get all new towels to match them. I just love that calico/linen combination. I'm thinking aprons and potholders now, too…
