Neighbor Gifts for me are so hard. I rack my brain every year to think of something I haven't done or hasn't been done to me. It is so difficult. I saw these flour sack towels and had an idea.
Here is what I came up with.
Flour sack towels
Martha Stewart Paints
Martha Stewart Fabric Medium
Start by prewashing your towels and pressing the spot you will be stenciling.
I made my stencils using my silhoutte craft cutter and vinyl.
I tried using Freezer Paper. I am not so great at using. My stencil was not to intricate so I was able to reuse it several times.
Place our stencil on and rub really well.
Mix your paint and fabric medium according to directions.
Dab brush into paint and lighty coat the brush.
Dab onto your towel creating print.
Pull the stencil off and let dry.
Let towel dry for at leat 12 hours.
Use Iron and press . Using heat will set the paint. Keeping the stencil after washing.
Like Wiping up messes or cleaning small faces.
Helping to bring food for a neighbor in need,
Or drying up tears when you bang up your knee.
It swaddle a baby, all snug and tight
When the guiding star glowed bright in the night.
Whatever it’s calling, its purpose is true
To serves as a gift from us to you
Have yoru kiddos sign the back and your finished.
Super easy and fun for your kiddos to make and do.
