Challenge : The Tulip




The challenge of the European Street Team for this week is from ZsBcreations and is called "The Tulip".

As a Dutchie I am a bit biased of course and I had to make something special for this; thought about tulip bags, hats, even a tulip made from buttons, but then I decided to go for an apron. I saw a picture of an old apron pattern with a tulip pocket on Etsy, and the whole thing started to take form into my head.

Then I remembered the beautiful vintage linen dish clothes I bought last year on a flea market here in northern Germany, and the design was complete. It's for sale in my P8 Accessories shop on Etsy. Maybe the beginning of a new line ?

I wish you could feel the vintage linen; it's gorgeously rough and there is a beautiful stripe pattern woven into it.
At the end of this post some of the tulips in my own garden; I hope they will appear soon again !
