Rula's Rules #147 calendar towel
"Authority on everything, expert on nothing," Rula is an over-the-top advice columnist from Williamsburg Brooklyn who will answer your burning questions about food and entertaining. On this dishtowel calendar, she warns her people to "Never drink and dry!"
Most of my calendar towel designs feature elements that increase utility and attractiveness when used as towels:
- a pattern layout that looks decorative when folded;
- areas with no ink (or lighter-colored ink) for better water absorption.
❯❯❯❯ NOTE: this artwork is for a 2011 calendar, so please contact me if you're interested in buying an updated version for next year, this year, or any year! I can have revised art ready for purchase within 48 hours!
PLEASE NOTE: The background is pure white, not cream. The yellowish cast is only in the preview -- see the fabric swatch photo.
SETUP: The overall pattern size is 17 x 26.75 inches and is designed to go on a fat quarter of the Linen-Cotton Canvas (27" x 18").
You'll need to hem it yourself, but there are tick marks for 0.25" hems on the bottom and sides and for a 1" pole pocket on the top. The final towel size, after hemming is 16 x 25 inches.
What we do and how we do it.
