When will I learn? When will I learn that most things will take me at least twice, sometimes more like five times as long to do as I think they will? This is the story of my life. Apparently I run my business no differently. I've wanted to get tea towels into my shop for awhile and I've finally managed to do it! Tea towels are available in my Etsy shop today! I love tea towels, kitchen towels, hand towels, flour sack towels, whatever you want to call them. I like them colorful and bold or uniquely illustrated. I tend toward vegetables, fruits, florals, and gadgets. I pick them up at Crate & Barrel and I find them at fun gift shops. A great tea towel can make drying the dishes FUN. Kinda. And NOW I'm making my own!
There are seven tea towels available in the shop now. Another two will be debuting shortly (my 2015 calendar tea towels). For now I have the following designs: Autumn Path, Kitchen Cupboard, Gizmos Galore (in 2 fun colors), Furniture Forest, Coral Floral, Get in the Garden, and Maple Vinaigrette. That last one is a fun illustrated recipe of my favorite maple vinaigrette from Gale Woods Farm.
All of the tea towels have been digitally printed on a linen-cotton canvas fabric by Spoonflower.com and then sewn up by me, with mitered corners and a twill tape hanger in one of the corners. They work equally well as wall decoration as they do to dry your hands. I hope you'll check them out. They'd make wonderful gifts, if I do say so myself. And I can say that because I gave out loads of them for Christmas last year.
I hope you enjoy them!
