More than a Tea Towel

As a designer, I often try to think outside the box and am impressed by others that do the same. Lately, some clever crafty types have been taking Thea & Sami tea-towels and transforming them into other products. This has inspired me to write this post.

Sandrine Marsh is a very stylish lady and I love what she has done with our Spoon & Whisk tea-towel. This is a cutlery roll for picnics. Visit Histoire De Soie for further details.

Even I have to admit that our Loads of Fishes linen tea-towel looks better as an apron. This is the creation of clever Tania Ennor over at Myrtle and Eunice.

Another clever transformation from the Loads of Fishes tea-towel is this adorable slouch bag by Nikki Cardigan at My Black Cardigan.


Here's an easy no-sew idea from my blog archives. I like to use a tea-towel to gift wrap a a bottle of wine. This way, the recipient can fondly remember you and a (hopefully) pleasant occasion long after the wine is forgotten. This towel is now longer in our range but you can use any towel. See more pictures on how to gift wrap your bottle here.

And speaking of towels, is there no love for Pop-Art Girl? You still have a few days for your chance to win that tea-towel here.

Have you transformed a tea-towel into something else? I would love to see it.

I think framing a tea-towel is creative.

Thea, what a great way to wrap a bottle of wine as a gift. Love it!

Kirsty said...

I wish I had thought of wrapping something, I just gave the tea towels as the gift...

If I bought one for myself I would probably frame it too, they seem too nice to use!!
