So. I confess. I am not the World's most craftiest person.
I do love craft. I appreciate craft and Pinterest?
Pinterest is like a godsent for people like me.
But I do love the occasional challenge.
And I would love to thank Tamsyn for inviting me to join in her Handmade Christmas Gift Roundup.
I went to the local shopping centre last night and it was CRAZY.
Everyone was doing their christmas shopping.
The queues at all the shops were massive.
And I had a massive headache.
I love Christmas!
But I don't love the elbow loving and the bag bumping at the shops.
I am not really fond of buying something off the shelves just because I couldn't find anything else.
So. To cut to the point.
I spruced up some plain tea towels I had with the aim of giving it to a friend.
If I can do it, so can you!
And the idea is really to do ANY design you want to.
What You Need:
- A plain tea towel (linen, cotton...anything you fancy.)
- Fabric paint (found at any good art and craft store, in any colour you like!)
- Sponges (to cut into your desired stamp shape)
- Used wine bottle cork
- Stamps (I chose a reindeer one!)
- Stamp Ink Pad
In the end, I didn't use the sponges because my little girls ran off with them and I thought a simple cork and reindeer stamp design might still do the trick.
I recommend using a paintbrush to paint the fabric paint onto the cork to stamp.
Would you have a go at making one too?
Do a colourful polka dot one!
Or do a chevron one!
OR if you've got lovely alphabet stamps or stencils... personalise it with a name or message!
