With the changing season, I am ready for some indoor crafts and some lazy conversations over a cuppa. Life will not dish out many days that will allow for dreamy afternoons like that, but when they come I want to be ready to snatch up that time! In a preemptive strike sort of way, I decided to get ready for the moment when it presented itself by crafting up a cheery little tea towel. At least it got me crafting, and when all was said and done, it was so cute that I simply had to brew up a cup and enjoy my handiwork!
- flour sack towel
- acrylic paint (your choice on color, but citrusy colors like yellow, orange, green and even hot pink are adorable)
- paint brush
- paper plate
- paper towel
I really wanted it to look like lemons and not just polka dots, so I needed the divisions of the lemon to stand out. Squeezing some of the juice out did a pretty good job of it, but next time I may simply cut the lemon the night before and let it dehydrate overnight (on the counter or uncovered in the fridge).
