~Seaside Tea Towel Cushion~

In this month's Coast magazine there was a crafty tutorial about using souvenir tea towels to make cushions, bags and aprons, see here for more about it.

I had a vintage teatowel from Cornwall (bought in a Falmouth charity shop last year) so have had a couple of hours sewing this afternoon, after finding some suitable ticking fabric and pom-pom trim in my cupboard.

  2. Hi Sally

    I love it - hadn't thought of this. I quite liked the poster that Kirstie Allsop had in the cottage over the fireplace; really taken with this. Now you have me looking for tea towels. Take care and thank you

  5. Brilliant idea. Blimey, I have that tea towel but unfortunately it's well, well worn with the holes and fraying that happens over time! x
