diy wednesdays: stamped dishtowels

by the curiosity shoppe

you may have seen these darling rubber stamp sets from yellow owl workshop here on design*sponge a few weeks back. well, we just got them in at the shoppe and couldn’t resist breaking them out for a little rubber stamping extravaganza. you can use these on almost any surface, but we decided it would be fun to pick up some fabric-friendly stamp pads at our local craft store and whip up a few custom tea towels. click here for the full instructions or just click “read more” below.

have fun!

here’s what you’ll need:
-rubber stamp set
-dish towel
-fabric-friendly stamp pad
-paper towels

1. prewash your towels.
2. decide on your arrangement.
3. using the fabric stamp pad, stamp your design onto the towel. (if you decide to use multiple colors for each stamp, be sure to clean the stamps between applications. glass cleaner works great for this.)
4. once ink is dry, heat set with an iron. you may want to place a paper towel between the iron and the ink to avoid getting ink on your iron.
