I love vintage linen tea towels. I usually buy them with Vera Neumann designs but now and then something else will catch my eye and I must have it. Or sometimes I will buy a bundle of tea towels at a great price and end up with something odd. This one came to me that way but honestly, how could I resist?
What I really liked was the lettering which is the Gettysburg Address. I thought it would like nice as a reverse applique piece. But the more I looked at it the more I knew I had to include Abe’s beautiful visage. This is the result. I like his little stovepipe hat.
