In the meantime, I have been searching for other things to make from vintage tea towels, and found this brilliant childrens sun hat on etsy, made by a Melbourne artisan sueneale. It is made from a Kakadu National Park vintage tea towel. Love those green and yellows with the frill necked lizard, ideal for an adventurous little boy!
USD$35 by sueneale.
Some people are so clever!
