A bit of Australiana (must be pronounced with an accent)


I've been sorting through the tea towel stash, looking for a little bit of Australiana....


.... and whipping up some totes using my tutorial.

I'm very glad that I don't have to actually cut the tea towels......... just in case I change my mind


Some of them are just way too pretty

Yay - I just scored some bright and garish Strine teatowels at savers. This will be perfect to try out, and so quick!!! Is this a new tute or did I just miss it first time around?

I can't resist a good teatowel and some might say that I now have too many! Funny that so many are from Australia (& have ended up in Canadian thrift stores). Now I know what to do with the ones that are too pretty to wipe up life's spills: they carry life's stuff instead!
