DIY: Textile stamping

16 Aug

I was inspired by this blog post by my friend Lisa to do some veggie stamping on textiles. I chose the good old potato stamp variety. For this, all you need are potatoes, cookie cutters, some fabric (in the form of a bag, in my case) and textile colours (mine are from Rayher DecoArt).

At first I wanted to try a lot of different shapes but then I stuck to the stars. Maybe next time I’ll use a heart.

How do you like my new bag? Textile printing with potatoes is easy and fun. And you can make very individual gifts.

    I remember doing crafts like this as a kid, but it fits in well with the distressed-vintage-chic look that’s so in right now! It would be fun to do on pillows or a table runner.

      It’s a lot of fun and so easily done. ^^ And I love the personal touch.

    That is a GREAT idea!! I’ve made potato stamps but never thought of using a cookie cutter to get the design. I have to try this.
