Another beautiful project from Purl Bee – I love how their simple designs, when paired with such gorgeous fabrics, come out perfect every time! This sewing project is for tea towels, but Purl Bee’s attention to detail and the finishing touches really makes these stand out.
The fabrics do, too – I used creamy porcelain Prairie Cloth as the base (a large gauge upholstery weight fabric with a handwoven feel), and Liberty of London Tana Lawn Seasonal (designs Pink Irma and Midnight Flora Eve) for the ends. I bought 1 1/2 yards of the Prairie Cloth, and was able to make five tea towels with very little left over; I bought 1/2 yard each of the two Liberty prints, and used up all of the Pink Irma, with enough Midnight Flora Eve leftover to have been able to make a sixth towel.
I made all five tea towels in an afternoon, even after forcing myself to slow down and pay attention to the stitching detail – the instructions are spot-on, and the finished product comes out exactly as advertised. Love it! These will be a great addition to my gift closet – the perfect go-to gift for birthdays, housewarming, hostess, or any occasion.
