Is it teething time for your little one?
There is nothing like giving a gorgeous handmade gift to really make a person feel special. If you are looking for something easy and quick that you can do with the kids, then this hand stamped tea towel is ideal.
 
Taken from The Irish Countrywomen’s Association Book of Crafts, this project uses simple dots to brighten up a plain tea towel, but you can go as complicated or as easy as you like.
 
What you’ll need:
Plain white tea towel or cotton fabric
Fabric paints
Potatoes
Cookie cutters
 
Method:
  • Place your cookie shape of choice on top of our potato and press firmly so that your cookie shape makes an indent in the potato.
  • Cut around the shape of the cookie cutter to reveal the shape of the potato. You can also create a shape free-hand with a knife, e.g. a triangle.
  • Place a piece of cardboard between your tea towel and your surface so that the paint doesn’t seep through.
  • Place your stamps in the fabric paint colour of your choice and stamp away.
  • Hang up on clothes line to dry overnight. If you’ve been using cotton fabric add a hem to complete the tea towel.
