A couple of weeks ago I was reading one of my favourite blogs, asking for trouble. Marcelline designs the cutest characters, including gingerbread men and women. She mentioned that there was a free shipping day on Spoonflower so I took the opportunity to order her ‘Sew your own’ gingerbread cookie couple tea towel fabric and it finally arrived, along with some gorgeous prints from Mollie Johnson!
It came as a printed panel, featuring a cute gingerbread cookie couple and a handy 2016 calendar. The version is designed to fit Linen-Cotton Canvas, the best choice for tea towels.
I was very excited when my Spoonflower order landed on my doorstep. There were a couple of other pieces of fabric I ordered and I’m hoping to have some grown up crafting time soon.
The tea towel was fun to make. I used my quilting clips to hem the tea towel and used my sewing machine to sew around the edges to finish it off.
It took about 30 minutes – I like this kind of craft project!
I love this little gingerbread couple and luckily you can buy all sorts of products featuring them. They also feature in downloadable wallpaper for iPhones and laptops so I’m feeling quite festive at the moment, surrounded by cute little gingerbread people!
