    Lemon Kitchen Towels

    Level of difficulty:  Beginner

    Design and create your own deliciously cute, fruit-stamped flour sack tea towel! We used lemons and oranges to make a fun, summery pattern.

    What You'll Need:

    Let's Do This!

     

    Step 1:

    1. Cut a lemon and an orange in half.
    2. Squeeze some of the juice from the fruit.
    3. Use a knife to remove some of the flesh in the segments and expose the walls. Try to keep the walls intact, as that will help with creating a more detailed print.

     

    Step 2:

    1. Use a paint brush to apply a thick coat of paint to the fruit.
    2. Press the fruit onto the fabric. Tip: Protect the surface you are working on. The paint may bleed through the fabric.
    3. Lift the fruit to reveal your print.
    4. Touch up any missing spots with a paint brush and paint.

     

    Step 3:

    1. Stamp a few lemons in a row and then add an orange. Make your own pattern! Let dry.

     

    Step 4:

    1. Acrylic paint is permanent once dried. Use an iron on a cotton setting to heat-set your fabric pattern.
