Those of you who follow this blog know that Anastasia loves to use buttons in her crafts. Just do a search on the blog, and you’ll find quite a few button projects. However, buttons can have other, more practical, uses and not just for keeping your clothes secured. Here’s one of my favorites:

Not all of us are lucky enough to have several bathrooms in our home. Many of us have to share a bathroom with one, two, or even more family members. Few of us buy different colored towels for each member of the family. We buy colors that coordinate with our bathroom decor, and that’s usually no more than two colors, if not just one. And that means your husband or one of your kids often grabs the wrong towel. Sound familiar?

To cut down on towel confusion, assign each member of the family a color. Sew a button of that color on the corner of each person’s towel, and you’ve solved the problem.
