Life’s A Bowl of Fruit!
by Terre Fry
In my house, my little girl just loves all types of fresh fruit, so I decided to create a handmade pear towel to line a wooden basket. The towel gives the fruit a soft place to keep them from getting bruised and a great way to add character and design to my kitchen.
Skill: Beginner (though there is some hand stitching!)
Time: 20 minutes + stitching time
Using Memento Luxe Pear Tart, stamp around the outer area of your linen towel. Make sure you ink your stamp completely and press evenly on your stamp block to get a clean crisp stamped image.
To set your Memento Luxe ink into the fabric, you will need to heat set each of your stamped images. Set iron according to your fabric type; make sure not to overheat as it will scorch your fabric. (Let it cure for 48 hours before laundering, but you can continue to step 3.)
To add a decorative border around your towel, hand stitch a back stitch using embroidery thread and a needle.
