As well as gift-wrap, tags and greeting cards, I also developed the 'Teatime at Three' range even further by developing and creating a range of kitchenware items.
Below, I have included some photos of the different items, and have given brief explanations about each product.
The three photos above show my napkins that I designed; in total, I created eight different designs, which would then be sold in sets of 4. Each set followed a different theme, one 'drinking tea' and one 'traditional british tea-party and food' with 4 individually stitched and embellished vintage linen napkins.
After the napkins, I then created these tea-towels, on plain white cotton towels from Cargo; I produced two twin-sets - teacups and cake slices - each following the same design concept. On one tea-towel, I simply stitched an image straight onto the towel, whereas on the other I used plain white cotton, stitched onto patterned, co-ordinated fabric, to create a band across the tea-towel with the stitched image on.
I was really happy with the results of the towels and napkins, and had a lot of positive feedback about them at my private view; unfortunately, I had only produced one set of each for hand-in, so couldn't sell any even though people wanted them. But, at the moment, I am looking into costing of bulk tea-towels and napkins, so watch this space for products to buy!!!!!
Also, in the gift-range, I produced this one-off apron, which I love :)
I am really happy with the final product; my mum actually made the 'pinny', and I then stitched the imagery and text onto the front and created the packaging label. I feel that the shape, and style of the apron has a very vintage feel, and therefore ties in well with the rest of the range.
