production series: tea pots -- part 3

we continue on today from part 1 & part 2 of this production series to show you what products i have made using this new tea pot print.


 its a similar post to the one i did about my 'apple' prints. some items are available to purchase in my shop now, others will be there soon after a bit more refining.



tea towels - these started out in just red. but thanks to a custom order request (via my madeit shop), yellow and blue are now featured there too. (ps: i actually LOVE the blue best!)




then onto a bit of creative sewing to make a birthday gift for a friends 2 year old girl...i used a natural linen fabric for the print patch & then appliquéd it onto a bondsie.



important announcement...i have fallen in love with hemp fabric! (organic of course!)


i have begun to experiment with this wonderful textile & i am addicted. you will certainly be seeing alot more BIRCHseed hemp products soon.


 ... and here we have a tea pot coaster to place underneath my tea pot. i have used hemp for the print and some vintage floral fabric from my own stash - have you seen my stash btw?




and finally, i am toying around with the idea of creating a little 'tea party' softie set for toddler-girls imaginary playtime.


i have an amazing tea cup collection to use for some new blockprint designs that will be added to the tea set over the next few weeks.

:: Do you think some tea cup tea towels would be good too? i know i will be making some for my kitchen!


ps: this post was featured in this weeks 'our creative spaces' blog spot... some great designers & makers over there so go check it out!

  4. thanks for the nice comments girls!

    its good to hear some feedback about making a play set Michelle. it is my next project after a new toddler boy design i will show some time next week.

    radishandruth.... its a bit weird having a tea pot coaster for a tea pot, especially as the print is the same as my own teapot! (bit of overkill) i think i will run this item as a giveaway soon instead of me keeping it - what do you think?

    topcat - thanks for the rav reviews :) hearing feedback for my product keeps me carving in the shed, even when its freezing cold!!
