Tea Towel Design challenge

17 November 2016 16:32

This month's design challenge was to create a tea towel, with either a Christmas or a calendar theme.  There was just one calendar:

Snowman Tea Towel

This was inspired by a set of textile Christmas ornaments combined with a snowy photograph.

And one celebrating the Winter Solstice:

Winter Solstice

The designer used a watercolour painting she did of the white horse in winter and merged it with one of her textile artworks to give a mixed media effect to the tea towel.

All the rest followed the Christmas theme:

Tea Towel

Candy Canes

Christmas Around the World

Pudding Robin

Some of these will soon be available in our Market Place, along with other Christmassy fabrics.  (Some are in the top slot, but you can use the filter on the left to look at Christmas designs from everyone.

Next month's challenge will be for the children.  look out for the details on December 8th.  We're also launching our January challenge in December, so you can think about it over Christmas if you want to!  Look out for that one, too - it's a bit different this time, and will be a competition.
