Who would have thought that the humble tea towel could be transformed into a number of fabulous projects? Craft magazine contributor Jemima Schlee demonstrates how you too can create one of 16 projects quickly and simply using basic materials and a little know-how in Take a Tea Towel: 16 Beautiful Projects for your Home (published by GMC).

A brief introduction is followed by a full colour photo gallery of the projects within the book which you can find in one of the four following chapters: The Workroom, The Laundry Room, The Bathroom and The Kitchen.

Each project is clearly explained and accompanied by full colour photographs taking you through the instructions step-by-step.

It also provides step-by-step instructions and advice on adding finishing details to your projects with hand-stitching, embroidery and fabric painting techniques.
