Sewing Projects for Vintage Tea Towels
After playing with them for a bit, I decided I could make a couple of pillows from one and a tote bag from another. I'm very pleased with how both projects turned out.
The pillows I'm keeping! I think the bird illustrations look like they might be in an Anthropologie store don't you? The tea towel was really too long to make into one pillow, so I split it and made myself two. I used Bari J's Art Journal fabrics to complete the pillows. The colors and bird & nest designs matched my tea towels perfectly and modernized them without taking away their vintage feel.
Now, go run and find some old tea towels and get sewing!
