Take a Tea Towel

Clean, crisp and practical. That sums up the classic linen tea towel, and also this innovative new title. Take a Tea Towel contains 16 projects, four for each of the main four areas in the home: bathroom, kitchen, laundry and workroom, all using hardwearing Irish linen tea towels. Embellishing the pieces with different techniques such as dip dying, embroidery, fabric painting, and photo transfers each project has an aesthetic simplicity and is practical and hardwearing. Linen is a very durable, strong fabric. The author, Jemima Schlee, has used the beautiful, timeless Irish linen glass cloth because the nostalgic, striped glass cloth sits comfortably in any interior as simple, practical and timeless.

Projects include: Bathroom - window panel, chair seat, sponge bags and hanging storage roll; Kitchen - chef’s apron, vegetable bags, tote bag and tea cozy; Laundry - clothes peg bag, coat hanger covers, linen envelopes and laundry bags; Workroom - sewing machine mat and cover, knitting needle roll and string storer.
