Tablet weaving by Linda Hendrickson: Inscription band with woven letters based on Gill Sans

For Christmas 2003, my mom told me she would like to have pink hand towels for her bathroom. To make the gift more personal, I wove this band, and then sewed it to a towel.

I used 10/2 perle cotton for warp and weft, and letters based on Gill Sans from my book Please Weave a Message, There are 24 tablets for the pattern area, and 4 tablets on each side for the borders. I machine washed and dried the towel and band separately to preshrink them, then pressed the band, turned the ends under, and sewed the band onto the the towel by machine.
