Clean, crisp and practical. That sums up the classic linen tea towel, and also this innovative new title. Take a tea towel contains 16 projects, four for each of main four areas in the home: bathroom, kitchen, laundry and workroom, all using hardwearing Irish linen tea towels. The book will appeal to people who want to learn to sew, those who want to develop their sewing skills, for those with a love of simple, clean design and an appreciation of the utilitarian simplicity of Shaker design. This multi-craft project book teaches machine- and hand-sewing techniques and also includes different ways of adorning fabrics: dying, embroidery, fabric painting, photo transfers, Dorset button making, and many more.
