Easter Tea


It was stunning here today. A mere 80'F. Our crabtree looks just like the one in the above photo. How I wish I had five sweet chicks to sit adoringly on a branch.  


A couple of stitches this weekend brought about a trio of tea towels all Easter inspired. These images are from Diane Mars shop, Saturday Finds.


This reversible one has a little Easter girl on the back.


I had far too much fun pairing fabrics with these images.


I had to limit myself to three or I wouldn't have been able to finish.


Diane's digital images are so bright and crisp.


I have used them for paper and now fabric.


Now, who do you think will take a swipe with their dirty hands on these? I know which kiddo in my house would without even thinking. Good thing their headed out for a swap.

Speaking of heading out....head over and visit the unbelievably talented Imagimeri for a chance to win...

Your tea towels are so sweet. I have just recently been playing with images on fabric. I think I finally figured it out. Someone in the swap is very lucky.

I love the combinations you put together - they are always just inspired!!
What kind of transfer fabric do you use and is it already treated so the image is washable? Those are so sweet I would be scared to pieces I would ruin them. Maybe that is why everything I make starts out with salvaged materials that are already kind of raggedy - LOL!

Love the tea towels! How do you print the images on fabric? Do you use fabric printer paper, and applique it on? :) xo Heather
