All you need to make one-of-a-kind stamped kitchen towels are potatoes, a sharp kitchen knife, fabric paint, 100% cotton kitchen towels and an iron.

Create Stamp

Cut the potato in half and carve your stamps. Start by lightly “drawing” your design with the knife. Then cut away all of the excess potato around your design. Keep your designs simple.
