Up until a year or two ago, I’d never heard of a tea towel calendar – a calendar with a pretty design printed on fabric. Thanks to Spoonflower’s annual tea towel calendar contest, I’m now in the know. The idea of something that marks the year and helps dry the dishes appeals to my practical side!
This year I have three 2015 tea towel calendars available at Spoonflower: Bee Towel (pictured), Bird Talk and Bird Talk Original. There are a lot of fun calendar designs by other designers available, too – I’ll bet you can find one that matches your interests and your kitchen.
Matching kitchens reminds me of one of my most interesting requests on Spoonflower: A woman who was designing a steampunk time travel themed kitchen and wanted a sepia-toned version of my popular Time Travel Map fabric for curtains. I love the amount of time they put into coming up with a vision and a backstory for their kitchen — awesome!
Other special requests have come from people making quilts, custom lampshades, curtains for vintage Airstream trailers — it’s always a kick to see what people make with my designs.
