A couple of months ago I posted on my Instagram about me commissioning a bag maker to repurpose a tea towel. Bec & Milly made my Cath Kidston Care Bears tea towel into a handbag – as I didn’t want the tea towel to be hidden in a drawer. Here it is!
When I picked up that bag, I took Bec another tea towel I had stored away, too beautiful to use. This one was a mushroom friends print by Anna Seed Art.
Bec and I spent a lot of time framing the tea towel to maximise the print, I didn’t want to chop any mushrooms in half, and I love all of the flowers, insects and fruit too.
She lined it with some vintage-esque yellow floral fabric, which is a lovely pairing.
These photos show a brown strap, but I’ve chosen a red strap, as I don’t do brown!
It’s on its way to me in the post – I can’t wait to use it!
When I was young, my parents would hang tea towels on the wall as artworks. I still have one of those today, to reminisce.
Thank you Bec for turning a tea towel into wearable art, and to Anna for designing such a cute tea towel! It’s so beautiful and I am thrilled to have a one of a kind.
Not sponsored or gifted, I bought both the tea towel and bag.
