Do you know people who always need a napkin no matter how small a snack they eat?! And I mean a napkin for setting the table all fancy not because spilling something. My dad is one of those. And of course he prefers a cloth napkin over a tissue one.
So I figured why not combine today’s DIY with making a Christmas present? And no he shouldn’t be reading here he doesn’t know about this blog (yet).
So here it goes: Star Napkins
Here is your shopping list:
♥ erasers or star stamps
♥ linocut carving tools
♥ napkins (of course you can sew yourself some if you like)
♥ textile paint
♥ brush, pencil, scissors
Making the stamps.
I decided to make myself some star shaped stamps out of eraser. Of course you can go ahead and buy stamps.
To transfer your stars to rubber I came up with a trick. Design on a computer and print. Then color your stars with a pencil. Put colored side on the eraser and press down with a damp rug. The pencil will transfer to the rubber and you can easily carve your stamp.
Once done comes the stamping part. I recommend prewashing your cloth as sometimes there are still industrial ruckstande within.
Now go crazy with stamping away.
Fixate your napkins according to producers instruction.
Set the table and enjoy a nice and fancy dinner!
Happy crafting, Tobia
