These were made for Lilyvanilli in the Set of Tea Towels swap, in honor of our mutual love of Flight of the Conchords.  They commemorate the song Ladies of the World which has lyrics that include:

If every soldier in the wo-orld
Put down his weapon and picked up a woman
What a peaceful world this world would be-eee...
Redheads not warheads
Blondes not bombs
We're talkin' about brunettes not fighter jets
Oooh Oooh it's got to be Sweet 16's not M-16's
When will the governments realize it's got to be funky sexy ladies?


Here's my interpretation.

All 3 towel fronts:



Redheads, not warheads



Blondes, not bombs



Brunettes, not fighter jets



The backs of all 3 towels



Back of redhead towel



Back of blonde towel



Back of brunette towel



I think what I like most about them is that the girl's face came from a Barbie coloring page online.  Thank goodness she didn't end up looking like Barbie!  They were tremendous fun to make-- it's fun to work on something that makes you giggle!

Thanks for looking!  Comments, of course, are always welcome!
