Downton Abbey Tea Towels from Spoonflower

Future Tea Towel

Browsing Spoonflower is risky business for me.  It’s just too many cool ideas in one place, and it seems that I’m incapable of “just browsing”.  A yard of this linen/cotton blend fabric makes four “Property of Downton” tea towels so you can stock up or share, or you can make just one with a fat quarter.  I decided to share.

If you’d like to make an easy but professional looking tea towel, there’s a great tutorial for mitered corners on The Split Stitch.

The result is a pretty wrinkly towel, but since it’s a linen/cotton blend it’s going to get softer, better and more relaxed with each washing.

Things that get better with use?  Awesome.  And it makes me smile, so I’m going to count this one as a win.
