diy – patterned tea towel

IMG_8.jpgIMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg I have been wanting to draw, colour, and/or paint fabric for quite some time now. At the same time, I could never bring myself to make a trip to the craft store solely for a fabric marker. I thought that it would be a waste of time and possibly money to undertake a project with a medium that I had never tried before. Then I remembered that I am an amateur blogger, and that even if I were to fail, I could still blog about my trials. Hello, opportunity!

That being said, I did not fail. What became two months of worrying about a simple DIY turned into literally 10 minutes of drawing. This project was fast and fun, and completely inventive. I am now on a mission to rid our home of our old tea towels and dish cloths and to replace them with inexpensive white ones so that I can draw all over them. I would highly recommend this project for those of you who feel like acting like an artistic child again. It is so freeing.

    another idea to bring you back to childhood (aka connection with nature) is to climb a tree.

  3. So cute! Great idea!

  4. So simple, yet the look is like something you’d find in a store. Nice.
