Finches Teatowel - Photo Courtesy Shiny Happy Art
I finished this project well over a week ago.... and I've been completely bursting to show it off!
On my cutting table in pieces
But first, I needed to find a very large box to fit it into without crushing it.
Then I had to make sure that it arrived as a big surprise, while Anna thought that I was still working on it.
The thing that I love the most about making these bags is that depending on the size of the original teatowel, and the placement of the print, you never quite know what it's going to look like until it all comes together.
This one features couple of very happy accidents.....
When I cut the teatowel into pieces, I didn't realise it at the time, that when I was going to piece them back together, the blue border would become a lovely feature running along the front of the bag. It sort of looks like I've added piping running along the join.
On the other side, I managed to incoporate Anna's signature from her original artwork up the top....
I'm totally in love with this bag..... so isn't it lucky that I have another Finches Teatowel in the stash?
