Easter towel supplies

I started with a thin white towel, I picked up a pack of these at Walmart and have used them for a variety of craft projects.  I pressed out the wrinkles with a hot iron before I started.

The cute pink and mint pom pom trim is from Michael’s. I was strolling through the clearance aisle, because you can’t leave a craft store without scouring the clearance aisle right, and I spotted these two rolls.  These are what inspired the towels, they are the perfect colors for Spring.  I cut a length to match the edge of  my towel and sewed the trim to the back edge.

Once the trim was secured in place I found the center of my towel to add a stamp.

How to stamp fabric easter towel

The key to stamping fabric and making it last is using a permanent dye ink like this Color Box Dye Ink.  I like ink pads like this because you get 4 colors in one and they all coordinate.  Just stamp the fabric as you would a piece of paper.  Let the ink dry for a minute then press the image with a hot iron, this sets the ink.  After a day or so these towels are ready to be used and washed.  The dye ink has held up well for me after washing.

These stamped tea towels are on my dining room buffet for now, I am looking forward to using them on my Easter table this year too.

That's such a cute idea, I have a lot of rubber stamps, now I know how to use them on fabric! I had no idea about colorbox and the pom poms are just perfect on the towel. Too cute!!

This simple little craft is adorable. I had no heard of colour box inks as I have never tried stamping. Your little teatowels are very sweet, I need to give stamping a try.
