Lately I've been addicted to collecting cute tea towels and cloth napkins, mostly from Etsy.com. They are fun to collect and useful for food photography and entertaining! They're also really easy to make at home. Here's how I made two cute cloth napkins:The stamping process is simple. I use the same method from this DIY project. I simply cut shapes from craft foam, brush paint on and stamp it onto the cloth napkins. The larger the shape, the quicker the process!Since I use fabric paint these napkins are totally washing machine friendly. They are reusable, so they save paper towels too.
I can't wait to share my new kitchen with you. It's about halfway finished. Yesterday we had a new countertop installed, and it's so pretty! I'm anxiously awaiting a mint green fridge… it should be here soon! I'm having fun putting all the details together. xoxo. Elsie
Kelly, I used premade cloth napkins from Target. I would guess them to be around 12×12 inches, though.
Good luck with your project- sounds like a lot of fun!
hi. just wondering what size fabric you used to make the napkins? I’m hoping to make a bunch for my wedding and wondering on what size. Thanks!
These are so cute! I definitely want to try that!
I can’t wait to see your kitchen! I know it is going to be adorable!
I’ve never tried fabric stamping! I’ll keep it in mind for a craft night.
The salad is beautiful too!
Great idea! Now I can the ones that are plain but more absorbent and make those cute! You think it will work for the waffle-ish ones?
Love the napkins. I have been itching for some lately. I don’t know why because I hate doing laundry, but they are just precious. I am inspired once more to have some! And Probably make my own. Thanks
Great idea! When I get my “real kitchen” I want to start using tons of cute tea towels to cut back on paper towels too.
Strive to Thrive,
Looks great! I’m wondering how the stamped portions feel. Does the fabric paint soak in to the fabric? Or, does it feel like paint on the towel? Thanks 🙂
I have been wanting to try this for some time now. What a great idea to use craft foam. So going to try this over the weekend for some possible holiday gifts (if all goes according to plan). Thanks for sharing
The polka dots are great!
I love stamped fabric because it adds the personal touch that you made it. Very pretty! Best wishes on finishing up your new kitchen! =)
I love the hand stamping you guys have been featuring! It looks so simple and so adorable – I have to try it soon!
a ray of sun
looking forward for post about your kitchen 😀
I love this idea! I think that I could do this myself too!
I just started making some as Christmas presents last night!!
This is so adorable :3
Can’t wait to see the kitchen! I could use a little inspiration for mine. Also, thanks for the fabric stamp DIY. I have a dress that I am planning to make that will be subjected to such stamping!
I love how your fabrics always have such bold and geometric prints 🙂 I have some linen fabric that I could easily use like this if I hemmed them. <3
