Porcupine Linen Tea Towel

Sparrow Avenue Porcupine Linen Tea Towel
Cute and Prickly, should be the title perhaps. This drawing isn't the easiest to print because of the solid black areas and the thin spiky lines. But when I get it right, it's very satisfying and always a relief. The detail around Mr. Porcupine's eye is always a pleasure to see, I think. I wash this linen first to remove some of its stiffness and then I iron it. It prints better then.

  1. It does sound stressful and hugely satisfying. I love the sweet eyes of a porcupine, such peaceful gentle creatures.
