Scarf with print – cats on potatoes
A quick project from Elia (www. ellieafter.com) for the scarf lovers, and even more for the cats lovers.
You will need:
- a piece of cloth
- fabric paints and marker
- plastic cups and dishes where to dilute the paints
- two potatoes
- a metal fork and a small knife or a similar object for the shaping of the potato
- plastic spoons
Wash and peel the potato. Use it to shape a sketch of a cat’s head. Use the metal fork -it is easier to put the stamp with it. Dilute the pain in the plastic cups before you start placing the stamps. If you are going to use the cloth as a scarf it is a good idea to put stamps on both sides.
When the cloth dries up draw cheeks with a pink marker for fabric. Draw eyes, moustcahes and noses with a black marker.
When you are ready fix the paint with an iron, if the instructions accompanying the fabric paint require it.
