Customized Tea Towel

I recently had a lot of fun turning a recipe of my grandmother’s into a tea towel for a birthday present for my mom.  My grandmother had written out this loose recipe for me when I first was doing my own cooking.  Like all of my grandmother’s cooking, it is a bit vague as she didn’t measure or use recipes.  I was able to use it to make a pretty good facsimile of her beef and barley vegetable soup though.

To create the tea towel, I scanned in and cleaned up the hand-written recipe on my computer and added a colorful border.  To make the fabric, I used the Spoonflower website to order a copy of the image printed onto linen cotton canvas.  All I had to do when the fabric got here was wash and hem it and it was ready to use.  Next time I would make the print smaller and embellish with some personal drawings of carrots and such, but I am pretty happy with how this came out.

  1. Rebecca tell your Mom that I think her tea towel is something pretty special. How nice of you! That is such a great idea.
