We’re raising our glasses to elevated entertaining spaces in this week’s challenge. When you’re creating your design, think of what you might find on a fully stocked bar cart. Will it inspire the perfect craft cocktail recipe, show off your love for tiki culture or give a nod to your vintage glassware collection?


Overview

Entries will be submitted at the Linen Cotton Canvas fat quarter size (27″ x 18”) but automatically previewed during voting as a Roostery x Spoonflower Special Edition Tea Towel. Follow the guidelines on the Spoonflower blog to ensure your design looks beautiful as both an unfinished Fat Quarter on Spoonflower and a finished tea towel on Roostery.
