Embroidered Tea Towel, vintage suga' and cream!

So I was in the Favorite Recipe Swap on Craftster and we had to make something small for our swap partner! So she said she loved "vintage patterns & embroidered tea towels" well that is right up my freakin' alley !!! So anyways she said her kitchen is sort of "strawberry themed" and blue... so here is what I made.
vintage dishware

Its cute huh?? I got the patterns from here I love their little shoes... he's wearing loafers... and she is wearing some heels... I love the simple designs of vintage patterns. half the time the drawing is just a simple animated sketch and it just makes me swoon... they don't make things like they used to! I also added the "dingle- berries" for a kitsch feel... plus they are just sooo "gaudy cute" !
Besides that I have finished Katies swap stuff, YAY it took me forever!!! I just have to do a few finishing touches and it should be on its way!!! I will post pictures of what I made after she receives it!

Also I set up my Etsy account and now I just need to get some better photos of some of the things I have made so I can list them!! Thanks to many of you in blog land and on craftster who have inspired me to try and sell my stuff! besides that I already got the licensing agreement with Sublime Stitching so I am in the clear as far as that goes!!! I wonder if anyone will buy my stuff??? Hopefully... other then that... I need to get going on my stuff that I will be selling at a few Holiday craft shows...Also, I think I am all swapped out for awhile... SPEAKING of that... I received my goodies from Amyracinrose... I must post photos today....

that is very cute.. love the dingle berries.. haha.. can't wait to see what you made me, I am sure I will love it. first off that isn't a link to your etsy. but this is BrookOwens.etsy.com, just so you know it is linking to etsy's home index, not sure if that is what you wanted or not. I am totally sure people will buy your stuff. And I know what you mean, guh having a sublime stitching license is making me their little bitch.. I can't stop playing around with patterns now.

dude... i heart you... you are so funny. And seriously... it's cute that you and your bf went to DL, but enjoy it now. My husband and I have a running joke that DL is the happiest place to ever consider Divorce. We always HATE each other by the end of day 1, and we usually go in 3 day stints. BUT... now we've figured out that a cooler of beer at the hotel helps! LOL!

These are adorable! Anthros are my favorite subject to embroider! And anytime I run across vintage tea towels w/anthros, I buy them.

Good luck w/your Etsy shop!
