Printing tea towels

During the summer I printed one of my designs that I had used for a limited edition print and for stationery onto tea towels. These were then available at the Open Studios that I exhibited at. The first colour used was the pink magenta one that you can see below. These proved to be very successful at the Open Studios and I was asked to make a custom order in a turquoise/green on some fabric for someone. This led me to try out this new Emerald colour in my Florentine Lilies design which has become even more popular and I have just heard that one of my customers loves it so much that she is framing hers.
Here are some sneak previews of the hand printing process which is done by me with non-toxic water based inks.  To celebrate the success of these and to welcome in the New Year I will be announcing a giveaway on this blog of one of my tea towels soon.

Winter Treats Etsy Treasury

















Whilst on Etsy this week I have created a Treasury of some of my favourite items and thought that I would share it with you. Unfortunately the tool that I have used to show it on this blog does not transfer fully to the small size of my blog and it cuts part of the Treasury off.  If you want to see it in its entirety here is the link to my Winter Treats Treasury. I would be really happy I woke up on Christmas morning to some of these gorgeous things.
