I can pretty much blame Betsey Johnson for my obsession with everything cherry print.  So when Ashley and I decided to make the first Maker’s Mix-Up theme for April CHERRY, I knew I would have to bring my love of cherry print to the game!  Having kicked out a couple wine cork projects already from corks left over from my mother’s surprise birthday party, I decided to use them as stamps this time around.  It was such a fun and easy way to create cherry print on a solid color kitchen towel!

I don’t know about you, but we seem to go through dish towels like crazy and I constantly find myself washing and rotating them.  They’re either damp from drying dishes, dirty from cleaning up messes, old, or just ruined from being married to a man whose hobbies are kept in the garage.  When they’re at the point of no return, I’ll buy new ones.  

So during a recent trip to Home Goods, I picked up a pack of pretty Nicole Miller kitchen towels.  Since white is never a good option for this house, I opted for a bright and sunny yellow color.  I knew they’d look darling stamped with cherry print!  Totally Betsey Johnson approved!

  1. Unfold your towel and decide where you want to stamp it.  You may want to keep a piece of cardboard underneath the towel to catch any paint that seeps through the fabric.
  2. Pour out a little fabric paint and dip an end of the wine cork into the paint.  Stamp paint a couple times on a scrap surface.  Then, begin stamping circles on the towel.
  3. Once fabric paint is dry, use a green fabric marker to draw a stem and leaves on the cherry.
  4. Allow marker to dry, then put your new kitchen towel to use!
