I bought some fabric with teapots, cups and saucers on from a local mill for about 5, and out of it I made a roman blind (apologies for fuzziness, the sun was out and this was the only shot in which the room wasn't dark):

And a little left over becomes...tea towels!

 Cheesy

Let me be the first to congratulate you! Everything looks great - especially the stool covers - I'm envious of your skill!    Grin

Those all came out beautifully. May I ask, what exactly is a tea towel for? Seems like an oversized napkin or something (I mean the ones I've seen in person, yours don't look like napkins!) They don't seem as absorbent as terrycloth, so I've always wondered what they were used for...

I have never liked the terry cloth towels to dry dishes on, so I buy the flour sack towels for tea towels(they are used to dry dishes with at my house). You know that looks an awfully lot like one of my cats is on your counter.

Tha's actually a really good question!  I mostly use mine for drying my hands during cooking, so I suppose I could just have a regular towel there, but then it wouldn't match my crafty homewares!  Cheesy

The other main use in this house for tea towels is when I spill a cup of tea, and my husband will zoom into the kitchen and grab a handful of them and zoom back to mop up the wayward tea.

ps. susankg53 - it's definately my girl in the photo!

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. Its basically used the same as a regular towel, just not of the terrycloth variety. Thanks! I always wondered...

How do you denote squealing in a post?
Well that's the noise I made when I saw this fabric!
How cute!!!
I like the chairs too, very geometric.

How hard was it to make your Roman Shade? I'm debating trying it, but I'm scared it's going to be too hard.
