A Little Bit of Kitsch for Your Kitchen
My mom came up with a craft project for us to do while our guys were busy watching a big football game one Sunday. This was a project she'd seen on one of Martha Stewart's television shows, which usually intimidates me because Martha's crafts tend to require precision, skill, immense patience, and a laundry list of exotic supplies. But this project involved stamping, a craft I mastered back in the 90's. The project was simple and I was impressed with the results. We made kitchen towels stamped with an apple pattern--using a real sliced apple. The materials included cotton towels (we used rectangles of muslin that mom hemmed), apples, acrylic paints, fabric medium for the paints, and a paintbrush. You just slice the apple, apply paint, stamp on the fabric, let it dry a bit, then draw on the seeds and stems. Voila!

That's great! I wouldn't have thought on using apples as well ;)

Haha, sometimes the obvious isn't obvious at all. Genius to slice an apple. I'd have carved some rubber or potatoes... *giggles*
