Spoonflower’s latest contest theme is “Mom’s Recipe Tea Towels”, which was chosen with Mother’s Day in mind. But since there is always some time between creating a contest-design and the day the top 10 are announced (well over 1 week), I didn’t realize until today just how close Mother’s Day really is. I wanted to draw (and print) her a card, but mailing it takes at least 1 week!
My tea towel is really unrelated to Mother’s Day; it features my mom’s apple streusel cake which she came up with for one of my visits. Yes, it’s vegan, and it’s so delicious that my partner and I ate 90% of it in one sitting on the day she made it (really rude, you might think, but she was glad we loved it).
The design is completely hand-lettered and pen-drawn.
How do YOU feel about Mother’s Day?
EDITED May 9, 2014: This design placed in Spoonflower’s top 10, and here are some fabric images:
