Hi Everyone! I am SO happy that Spring is (actually, finally) with us! I spend a lot of time in my kitchen this time of year making muffins and cupcakes for our gatherings. But, I looked around while baking for Easter and realized I needed some new tea towels. So, I came up with this quick craft.
This stamped tea towel is for a favorite chef/baker in your life, who also happens to love Disney. It’s so easy to decorate that the kids can make one for Mom on Mother’s Day*. It can even be replicated as favors at a birthday or shower.
Wanna “Whip Up Magic” in the kitchen with me? Let’s get started, together!
- 18 x 28 White Waffle Weave Tea Towel (with Aida Cloth accent or plain for crafting purposes. The color will not take if you are using a raised, fluffed or dark color weaved towel)
- Letter Stamps
- Mickey Mouse-themed Phrase Stamps (EK Success® MM Clear Stamps, #DMMCS)
- Clear Stamp Mount (if using clear stamps)
- Craft or Fabric Stamp Ink (permanent, which can be washed without fading or running)
- Craft or Fabric Marker in same color as your stamp ink (permanent, which can be washed without fading or running)
- 1 large Mickey Icon Button (EK Success® Dimensional Stickers, #DBM001)
- Royal Blue Embroidery Floss or Thread
Align your stamps into a phrase on your clear stamp mount. Make sure the phrase goes with the Mickey Mouse-themed Phrase Stamp. I’m using “Magic” from the EK Success® MM Clear Stamps. You can do a collage of the different phrases if you prefer.
Completely saturate your stamp with ink. Then place over area you like on the Aida Cloth portion of your tea towel. Press down firmly. If the image transfers too lightly, go carefully over the image with the marker.
Allow to dry completely.
Take a Mickey Icon button sticker and remove the adhesive backing. Then snip off the decorative stitch. Select a spot next to the stamped image on the Aida Cloth and sew the button on to it. I’m using a nearly matching thread. Make sure you sew the button nice and secure.
And that’s it! Place on handle to oven door to decorate your Spring kitchen.
*Depending on the font of the letter stamps you use, this can also be a nice surprise for Dad on Father’s Day to go with his grilling supplies.
Enjoy your day and craft away!
