Shrooms...


It's taken me well over a week, but I've finally finished the 'Shrooms handbag....


Made using a lovely 100% linen handscreenprinted Thea & Sami teatowel which was a lovely surprise from Melissa.


Luckily, I have a very lovely Fisher and Paykel Double Dishdrawer dishwasher (which I highly recommend purely just from an ergonomic point of view) so I never, ever, ever dry the dishes....


... and anyhow, I think every teatowel deserves to become a stylish handbag... don't you?

PS - this one is now available in the shop...

delicious cam, much better than getting all damp and soapy toiling in the kitchen

It looks great & yes, it is a much better use of a tea-towel than drying teacups!

Love it - how can you bear to sell it! And I agree with Rie - too lovely to be used for washing-up!

I have a couple of tea towels that I just can't use. Great idea. Love hte fabric combo too and the placement of the designers x2.

Hi Cam..if ever you have a wet dish that needs drying on your excursions you can pop it into your bag and it will be dry in a jiffy! A very elegant bag..for drying dishes.

Those have to be the best shrooms ever!! I love the style of the bag too - looks so crisp and chic. I guess it won't hang around until after payday ;) it'll fly out of your shop!!
