Try it! Vintage Tea Towel DIY

August 15, 2013 | Try it!

Do you love tea towels as much as I do? I mean, I don’t like drying dishes as much as the next person, but a good (linen is my favourite!) tea towel can not only make the job easier, but can pretty up the kitchen at the same time. Bonus!

So that’s why I’m really liking this very simple DIY from The Purl Bee! Aren’t these vintage inspired tea towels lovely? And you can jazz them up even more by using bright threads (neon YES!) too.. so cool!


So if you’d like to give these tea towels a go too, you can head over to The Purl Bee for the very in-depth tutorial. Beautiful! :)

Look! I made a top!

I made a shirt!I made a shirt!

It’s a slightly modified version of this pattern.. I didn’t do the double collar and changed the sleeves to be rolled. It’s the second top I’ve done from this pattern, and I’m slowing figuring out what works for me and what doesn’t, and altering it to fit. :)

And, it was actually a lot easier to sew this than trying to sew the t-shirt I attempted last week. I failed at the t-shirt, but this blouse I might actually wear! Success ;)

PS. Possibly should have ironed it before taking these photos.. sorry about that! Just keeping it real.
