Creative Tuesdays - Minty

Minty is the challenge this time over at Creative Tuesdays.

I love all things minty from chocolate to mint tea, so I dug out all the minty coloured fabric that I have to make this piece of wall art.  It is not completely finished yet, as the buttons on the bottom need to be sewn on and also the edges need finishing. Thinking about adding some lace for this, but will need to source it. The canvas also needs painting so that it can be hung or stood up easily.

Michael, I did manage to get some polka dots in!  More minty ideas are over on the CT blog.


  1. This is so cute, Linda! I LOVE it. Adore your tea cup with little buttons.

  2. Comment from

    so cute and cozy! You're so talented.

    My comments don't seem to be going through on your blog today Linda!

  3. this is so adorable! I think adding a tea bag on the side of the cup would say tea more but that's just what think.

    have a great day.

  4. You so such clever work with fabric and buttons. Just delightful and so "Minty"

  5. Fabulous Linda! My favourite colour and my favourite night time tea :o))

  6. Looks beautiful. I love fabric art so much. I'm terrible at sewing but it's always pleasure to see people doing it. I also ended up with "a cup of mint tea" with this ct- theme.
    Great work.

    1. Totally agree here about being terrible at sewing whislt loving fabric art. Well done!

  7. This is so cute, and fantastic wall art! This makes me think of Mint Tea, as well as Saint Patrick's Day, with all of the fabulous tones of green. Mint Tea is the best, whether it's Green (to wake you up with caffeine) or Un-Caffeinated. I'm a recent convert away from Coffee and to Tea, so I really enjoyed this. Great job!

  8. It's totally brilliant, Linda, and I LOooooVE that you made it with cloth. So talented and oh so very whimsical. I don;t know how you do it. Anyway, great job. Love the buttons too. Fun! Thank you.
