I am never sure how early I shoud start talking about Christmas, some people I know like to get all their planning & preperation done by October! Others leave it until the last minute! Either way I am going to start suggesting some gift idea’s and sharing some great tutorials for making your own presents. I have a large family & I like to make as many gifts myself as I can.
So my first gift suggestion is a tea towel! But not just an ordinary tea towel! It is also a kit to make a cushion, so you have the option to give the tea towel as the gift or to make it into the cushion and give that as a gift!
They are designed by Sarah Young a Painter, Printmaker, Illustrator and maker. Her work is often narrative, inspired by and referencing, myth, folk tales, circus and burlesque imagery. The tea towels are cotton, screen printed, and they can be cut, sewn and stuffed to make lovely toys or cushions, or fill with sand, pulses/grains to make a doorstop; Or simply keep as a lovely bright tea towel for your kitchen.
They are very easy to make up, you just need toy stuffing or they make goreous tea towels
