Happy New Year!
It’s taken me a while to get back to blogging since the holidays due to travel and other activities. I’ve been busy making but sometimes the path from camera to blog is slow. And now when I finally have time, the Lightroom->Flickr plugin is down 🙁 so my other posts will have to wait. I have some fun quilt finishes, Sprout makes and more to show!
Meanwhile, I have another little finish to show. These are some tea towels that I designed and made. The fabric is a linen-cotton canvas blend that I got printed via Spoonflower. They were having a BOGO (by one get one) sale on fat quarters and each of these is just a fat quarter of the linen-cotton.
After pre-washing the fabric — it washed up beautifully — it was just a matter of cutting off the excess and putting some cute mitered corners on them.
The design for this one is actually available for sale in my spoonflower store. I made it as a gift, but the person doesn’t read my blog 🙁 so I’m not worried about posting it. The design is on both sides — this view shows it folded it in half and the view below shows the other one folded up. That one is for *my* kitchen.
I’ve wanted to try the tea towels and if I think of any more fun phrases, I might make some more, but they’re not as absorbent as my more “towel” like hand towels, so I’ll probably keep them decorative. But I am pleased with how these turned out.
