Each of the four designs is imprinted on 20″ x 26″ premade cotton towels.
I purchase the 20″ x 26″ Tekla dishtowels at IKEA and imprint the sketches of my fine felines interacting with my dishtowels with a fabric transfer trimmed down to the image. The towels also have one vertical red stripe about 6″ from each edge. The towels themselves are 100% cotton and very soft and absorbent.
Each design began as a marker sketch of my actual black cats interacting with my dishtowels in the kitchen. My series of daily sketches over three years were done from life to capture their activity as it happened. When I realized I had several bright and colorful marker sketches of my cats and my dishtowels I immediately decided they were a set and I should somehow print the images on dishtowels. You can also purchase them individually. Click on each image Click on the images below to visit the product post.
I tossed a pile of dirty dishtowels onto the cabinet and they became an instant cat bed for Jelly Bean.
Lounging on the Dishtowels
They were clean, but I didn’t fold them fast enough. Mr. Sunshine is very pleased with his ingenuity. He is also daring me to move him.
Not Blue Stripes
Apparently Mr. Sunshine doesn’t care for the dishtowel with blue stripes. He scrunched it up and kneaded it as best he could, and it still isn’t right.
The Dishtowel Drawer
When three great minds get together to accomplish something, it should be somehow recorded, even if they had no idea what they wanted to accomplish.
