I think it says a lot about me that can get so very excited at the prospect of spending my Saturday afternoon taking photos of teatowels.
Granted, it partly involved being outside on a gorgeous sunny day, and also involved eating banana cake fresh from the oven, plus I got to spend some more quality time with my camera. Not to mention the fact that I'm excited about the teatowels themselves (a little side project we're working on).
I know teatowels aren't exceptionally innovative, but I like these a lot because:
1) It's nice to have just a little bit of finished product on our market stalls
2) They're made completely from scratch using a fancy hemming foot (by the talented Miki!)
3) Some of them are made from the very ends of our print runs, so the print only covers 2/3 of the teatowel and the rest is blank. I love this look! Sometimes I just get bored with seeing all-over prints every day and these feel a bit more like placement prints which is really refreshing. Am I sounding like a textile geek? I think so :)
Anyway here's some more random photos - I first tried taking the photos outside but like the indoor ones more.
Mmmmmmm banana cake (made by the man-friend, yay!)
Love how this idea for the labels turned out
Random photo (Someone needs to do some weeding)
Oh, if you actually want to buy some teatowels they'll be for sale at the MARKit design market NEXT SUNDAY 28th at Fed Square! Should be awesome. Hope to see you there!
