Tarting up tea towels

Originally two quite plain tea towels, now almost too pretty to use! I made these for Fiona.

the first one Cath Kidston-style

using scraps of plain fabric and hand appliqued.

The second one with a scrap of Peter Rabbit fabric (I made Sophie a pillow case as a house-warming present from this gorgeous piece).

I can't claim the spots as my idea!

And my buttons came from Love Paper Fish.

And here are the teatowels I received from Jytte. They fit perfectly with the rustic corner of my kitchen! Thank you Jytte!

  1. Those wonderful! And they seem so simple to put together with lots of opinions for variety. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Definitely too pretty to use - they are absolutely lovely!

  5. my goodness, they are so lovely I don't think I could use them either :) I am in love with the Peter Rabbit fabric! Hugs, Catherine x
