I have some awesome 70's towels from my Grandparents. I think I see some crafts in my future! I was thinking the hair cape would be an awesome hair DYEING cape! I usually dye in the nude (LOL) cause I'm scared of spillage!! Back in the day women had those elaborate roller sets with a ton of aquanet, they probably lasted a while! My Grandma did the same thing!! I think they did it seperately from bathing, so back then it was 2 projects altogether.

I'm digging the ballet slippers. You could dust the floors with your feet and then wash them, LOL!

I made the bikini/bra top (and I also linked to this post!).


I used some orange washcloths lying around the house and red scrap gross grain ribbon for the straps. You can read about my adventures with this pattern on my friend's vintage craft and collectors' blog: http://swapatorium.blogspot.com/2006/07/tacky-terry.html

I just saw these for the first time (I just became a member a week ago and I am still in awe about all). I love the Bra! and I am dying to make the party apron  (among other things).
Dyabolica would it be possible to get a bit clearer scan of this? My eyes are really bad?? TYIA

I know this is an old thread but I happened upon it while searching for something else and the pics that i'm assuming were once there, no longer are. i really wanna see this vintage towel amazingness, and possibly make something, i have a few friends in arizona that practically live pool-side and often joke about how they need clothes that are made out of towels since they're in a towel more than their clothes. so i'm begging you to repost those pics pleeeeeease
