Hey folks! How are ya? Well, I’m just sitting at home waiting to pop, and in the spirit of welcoming a little one I wanted to share my latest DIY inspired by the popular potato stamping technique!
Potato stamping has been around forever, I’ve never actually tried it until now but it has to be one of the easiest ways to create a stamp. Now, I chose to stamp a plain white swaddle blanket, but you can stamp almost anything! How about a tea towel, or a T-shirt? I just adore Kelly’s confetti T-shirt!
Well, let’s get to it shall we? Here are the supplies you need:
- 1 Large potato
- Fabric paint
- Paring knife
- Fabric of your choice
ONE Cut a cross section of your potato TWO draw your shape with a pen THREE trim around the shape with your paring knife FOUR using your finger, dab some fabric paint on your shape and test to make sure the stamp works as desired; then, start stamping your fabric!
You want to let the paint completely cure, about 24-72 hours before washing. I just followed the instructions on the back of the fabric paint bottle.
How about it? Will you give potato stamping a try?
