When cooler weather arrives, it's time for crafting! Last week I found the cutest set of patterns for tea towels. Each design features children engaged in a variety of activities. They are so vintage and remind me of the Campbell's Soup kids. So, I decided to try my hand at them. The transfers have been ironed on to flour sack towels and all but one has been carefully colored with a box of the kid's old crayons. What a task! After being colored, they have been ironed so that the colors meld into the cotton. You can see that at this point they lack detail, but that will soon change. Tomorrow the embroidery needle and thread get put to use --- creating facial features, detail to garments, and finishing touches. Cute vintage cotton prints will be stitched to the bottom as embellishment before they are all done. You know, it's been many years since I've taken time to 'color' and it's been kind of fun!
