My Own Art on a Tea Towel

Back in September I entered a design contest with Spoonflower. It was one of my favorite fabric designs so far… the little girl making a snowman. It was entered in the “pun” category with the little hand lettered “making friends” off to the side.

Well, when my mom was buying a bunch of fat quarters of my 2019 calendar tea towel for Christmas presents, she bought this one for me. And she did the sewing to make it into a tea towel for me. I just love it… though the design on it is much bigger than it was in my head. 🙂 But it is exactly what I wanted it to be… a sweet little winter decoration.

The top (back if it’s hung) of the towel is filled with these snowflakes of different sizes. I’m so afraid of getting it dirty, though, that I think it would make a better pillow. I’m looking forward to grabbing up a fat quarter (or 3 or 4) to make pillows for next winter. Hopefully I’ll get to share them here if I do. It is so much fun to see my own art on something. If you want to purchase your own fat quarter of “making friends”, head over to my Spoonflower Shop… and let me know what you do with it!

Gathering here.

With love for puns

Thanks to all of you who popped over to vote for me in the last Spoonflower Design Challenge.  I didn’t win, but I wasn’t really expecting to either.  There were so many amazing designs!  I just love how the challenges push me to get better.

I skipped the last challenge (total lack of inspiration for me), but instead took the time to work on this weeks challenge.  Spoonflower challenged us to come up with a tea towel design that used a play on words.  They wanted it to be punny.  I love puns and it just so happened that I had a super rough sketch of this little girl making herself a friend. I made a bunch of changes and polished it up a bit and have entered it in this weeks Designer Challenge.  Head over to vote if you want to.

2019 Calendar in Coffee Mugs Design

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here.  Summer is a super busy season for my family, but I have managed to do some hand lettering and painting.  I just haven’t managed to post any of it.  I am hoping to get caught up in the next few weeks though and to post some of my early things with a fall theme.

I hope you will all enjoy.  I am honored that there are 20 of you now following my little blog!!!  Thank you!

Coffee Cup Calendar Tea TowelHave you heard of Spoonflower?  It’s a design your own fabric/wallpaper company online.  And they have a weekly design challenge I’ve tried to participate in several times this year, but until now, I’ve not quite finished my design by the deadline.

Each week there is a theme, and if you noticed that I said until now, I’ve missed the deadline, you may have figured out that I finally made it with an entry.  This weeks theme is calendar tea towel, so I decided to design something using my coffee cups.  It’s designed as a fat quarter (if you are familiar with fabric measurements at all), but turned into a tea towel on their website.

You can vote here if you would like… no pressure to vote for me.  You  may vote as many times as you want… just vote your favorites!

But either way, let me know what you think.  I’d love to know!

Blessings,
