My first sewing machine arrived a few weeks ago, and things have turned quite domestic around here. It took me an entire evening to figure out how to spin a bobbin and another to thread the needle. (Those diagrams are a nightmare!) Then I got to work on the most basic project I could think of: tea towels.
But let me back up for a moment. Remember that sweet little lavender farm we visited a few months ago? Well I bought a few lavender-themed birthday gifts there and decided to design a tea towel to go along with them. I sketched the design on my iPad, finished it in Photoshop and uploaded it to my (new-ish) Spoonflower shop.
To make your own lavender tea towel: order one fat quarter of the design here in cotton-linen canvas (27 x 18 in.), trim and hem the edges.
