2) How did you make your tea towels?
I used to make collages to hang on my wall and this reminds me so much of what I'm doing now with fabric scrap applique. There is also the "drawing" element--using the free motion setting to draw with thread. The tea towels were inspired by Anthropologie towels. I used a French General woven twill for the towel fabric.
|Even the backs of these towels are fantastic!|
3) How did you learn to sew?
My mother mostly taught me to sew. When I was 10, she sent my sister and I to the neighborhood sewing lady for lessons. I made a tennis dress and sewed a lot of clothes through the years. My mother made a lot of our formal dresses, three girls, for proms and even a few in college.
4) What is your favorite animal?
I love all animals but I'm partial to pups!
Thanks Mary! Happy stitching!
