Vintage Tea towel cushions

I love love love these!

the backs are just as unreal as the fronts.
This calendar Australia map one is my favourite.  I've had this tea towel for a while and finally figured out what to do with them.  The year was 1977 on this tea towel.
Here is the back of my favourite.  I put a zip through the backs under a secret flap.  The zips are just as awesome, the one in this cushion is bright green.

This is a patchwork number using scraps of favourite bits.

this one is a mega map cushion.  It was a small square tablecloth with native animals in each corner.  The kids like learning landmarks when they lounge on them!
I've got my hands on a few more vintage tea towels to add to the collection and also some brand new souvenir tea towels which are equally as daggy as the older numbers.  I am on the lookout for a groovy split cane lounge/daybed for these cushions to sit on for a non tv watching part of the house, a good spot to read I am hoping!

Wow, those teatowel cushions are utterly fabulous. I'm always on the lookout for teatowels in charity shops but haven't seen some for an age - well apart from some recently for £2 each which weren't particularly nice.

Anyway, you mentioned in your comment on my post about a fat quarter swap. Yes, I've got loads of that pink material left and yes, I'd love to do a swap. Will you email me when you've got a minute and we can sort it! xx
