I used to play competitive scrabble quite a bit. I wasn't very good, but it was a lot of fun and I met some really nice people.
A couple of years ago I volunteered to make some ribbons for a local tournament; it was a fun project but quite a bit of work. I was pretty happy to stumble across the freely available scramble font which gives those scrabble-tile looking letters. I just sort of made it up as I went along; the first one I made (third from the right) I used a doubled-over strip of binding which I basted and gathered into the rosette shape. That wound up being a little tricky, so the rest are made of easy yo-yos. The hardest part was turning all those bottom ribbons.
