Hand Printed Kitchen Towels

I bought flour sack's awhile back from the awesome Dicks Five and Dime in Branson. My intention's were to make some kitchen towel's with my own design. And soooo those blank cloth canvases laid around my studio awhile amongst many other project's in progress till I finally got the compulsion to bust out my carving tools and material's and get to crackin!

I carved bird's & star's. Then I thought a Chevronish design formed from double feather's would be a good accompaniment . Something about carving is very relaxing to me, and one of my favorite Art's.
I found that when I got to the printing stage , it was easier by taping the cloth to a large cardboard . Also a rolling pin was perfect even pressure on the stamp. Finally after all was printed, I heat set the colors with an iron , and had three new towel's for my colorful kitchen !

Happy Tuesday!
