"Off with her head!"

Alice in Wonderland is 150 years old this year. Let's have a tea party to celebrate - and maybe a nice new tea towel? Anyway, it's a good excuse, not that I needed one, to re-read my old well-worn copy of the book.
I chose one of Tenniel's original illustrations for my design. I love his characterisation of the feisty old Queen of Hearts.
I wanted to make a design for a tea towel that could be folded in half and used as a placemat too. I thought a playing card design would work. So. Big pot of coffee, plenty of Photoshop eraser, a nice oldey-worldey font, and some beautiful natural coloured Irish linen...
Now we just need some wee cakes. And more coffee. Or tea. Or a glass of prosecco....
You can buy the tea towels in the shop HERE
