How-To: Handwritten Recipe Tea Towels

Handwritten recipe cards are treasured objects that can be passed down through generations. Though they’re often beautiful and full of fond memories, they’re also fragile, so they’re generally hidden away for safekeeping, and brought out only on special cooking occasions. Or, at least they were until now. Get your recipes out of the box and into the open with this handwritten recipe tea towel tutorial that Emma from Hello Beautiful shared on the Spoonflower blog!

For a woman who keeps a newspaper from the day she was born, my mum has surprisingly few keepsakes or handwritten memorabilia from her own mother who passed away in 1999. When I asked her to trawl through her old papers and files, she managed to find three handwritten recipes from my grandmother. They appear to be the only remaining examples of her handwriting left in the world, and they are therefore as precious as they are priceless.
I decided to use these recipes to make a set of dish towels for my mum and I. This way, the handwritten originals can be safely stored away yet the joy of being able to see my grandmother’s handwriting in an everyday context will continue to make us smile and feel close to her.

What a perfect gift idea! Check out the full how-to on Spoonflower.
