paperless kitchen


 
I have in my stash the DVD of Homestead Blessings - The art of Crafting by the West Ladies. I've been going through the dvd trying out some of the projects and I gave the handmade napkins a go. I followed the instructions to make these cheerful cherry napkins using a carrot as a 'stencil' and stamping direct to fabric. They used a marker pen for their stems but I just used acrylic paint and a thin brush. ( With the acrylic paint I mixed in Jo Sonja's textile medium to make the color steadfast and washable.)

 
I think they turned out really pretty and are so easy to make. I will definetly be giving the leaf napkins a try as well. 
 
I hope every one has a happy day!
