This week’s Spoonflower design contest theme is 2016 Calendar Tea Towel. It’s a very competitive contest every year, and there are so many cool designs to choose from.

My design started in a totally different place. My original idea just wasn’t working and rather than beat it to death, I changed it totally. Sometimes it happens and you just have to go with it. As soon as I did that, it started to flow. And I love the results so I’m pretty glad it went the way it went.

I incorporated a “chalkboard” feel with some shabby, vintage details and typography.

And, it’s available for sale, so if you’d like to purchase some tea towel panels, you can find them here.
They make great gifts and all they need is a quick hem and you’re done!
