I was looking forward to making this project for some time now. Tea towels are indispensable in our kitchen, they make great props for pictures and are beautiful gifts for friends that love everything handmade. Lately I've become quite fond of white and black contrasts, so I only used black paint for this set of kitchen towels. I also sewed the tea towels, using some beautiful vintage linen.
So, it all began with me washing the fabric, sewing and ironing it. Then came the fun part!
For this project you'll need: simple cotton or linen towels, apples and potatoes (or any other materials that you can use for printing shapes), a paint brush and fabric paint.
For polka dots I used an oval shaped potato, which I cut in half widthwise (or lenghtwise and in the shape of a house, for the tiny houses), brushed paint on it and carefully printed the fabric. Also, I applied paint before each stamping. As for the apple, it's basically the same, just that the process was ready much quicker, as the shape is bigger. Then I left the towels to dry and ironed them in order to fix the paint (according to the paint's instructions). Ta-da!
How do you like them? I'm already thinking of new designs with different colors and maybe even different techniques. Will you be making some?
