print one-of-a-kind kitchen towels with simple, bold designs
I love hand-printing so much, and with a little fabric paint or screen printing ink, you can easily print fabric. Printing kitchen towels is a fun idea - they're not too big, you see and use them all the time, and you can buy plain, printable ones cheaply and easily. I used a pack of flour sack towels from Target. I love the simple, woven look they have, and they actually are great kitchen towels!

First decide what kind of stamps you want to use for printing your fabric. Here are three different ways to make your stamp.
You can get stamp-making rubber at most craft stores, as well as the carver. Then you can away the rubber around your shape, leaving a stamp. But you can easily cut shapes into the rubber with an exacto knife. If you don't want to deal with all that stuff, a simple foam pouncer makes cute, easy polka dots.
If you're using a rubber stamp you made, first paint the stamp with a thin but even layer of paint. Then stamp it onto the fabric, applying pressure evenly all over the stamp.
You might have to experiment with how much ink to put on the stamp to get the look you want. Reink and repeat to complete your pattern.
