Spoonflower Edition Tea Towel Guidelines

In order to ensure the entirety of your design is captured in a finished Spoonflower Edition tea towel on Roostery, they’ve created a guideline that can be followed to ensure great previews and finished tea towels.

A preview of a Linen-Cotton Canvas Fat Quarter on Spoonflower measures 27″ wide x 18″ tall. A finished, hemmed, Spoonflower Edition Roostery tea towel measures 16’’ wide x 24’’ tall.  Your design will be automatically rotated 90º clockwise for the Roostery tea towel preview. Following the guidelines below will ensure that your design looks beautiful as both an unfinished Fat Quarter on Spoonflower as well as a finished tea towel. Need a little help?
