Welcome Jacque from the DIY village once again sharing her mad skills with us.
Today she shares an Anthropologie inspired flour sack towel.
Anthropologie always has the cutest kitchen towels, with not so cute price tags.
Inspired by what looks like a hand stamped tomato towel I decided to create my own.
It was so easy I’m kicking myself for not making one sooner!
– Flour Sack Towels (Mine are from Walmart)
– Fabric Paint
– Stamp (this one is from Hobby Lobby)
– Aluminum Foil
Pre-wash the towels before beginning to stamp.
Take a piece of aluminum foil and place it under your towel to protect the surface you are working on from paint.
Apply a thin coat of paint onto a paper plate and dip the stamp in the paint making sure to blot off any excess onto a paper towel.
Find your starting point and gently press the stamp onto the towel.
Continue stamping your towel making sure to rotate the stamp as you go to create a pattern. Also consider alternating the row patterns as you progress over the towel.
Before you know it the towel will be completely stamped and ready to use! How easy was that???
Whose ready for cookies?
Thank you again Miss Jacque for sharing. You know I absolutely LOVE this anthro inspired flour sack.
I may just have to go out and get a stamp of my own.

That’s adorable! Love that stamp!
Just adorable! That’s what makes Anthropologie such fun…they have some really simple stuff but just done in a quirky way so it’s always appealing!
I agree Lorraine, I love that store too! They are pricey though, and us bloggers got smart and just know how to copy them well now.
That is so cute. Now I want to go make towels!
So cute. She makes it look easy enough that “maybe” even I could do it!
Thanks for sharing Debbie…ENJOY THIS BEAUTIFUL WEATHER…YIPPEEEEE!
Oh you got me..that is awesome stuff. I think I might be using this one with my girls as they love stamps & stamping everything 🙂

I like that stamp better than the tomato towel- you can do it in any color to coordinate with your kitchen. Purple tomatoes just wouldn’t work as well. 🙂
Love this! That stamp is adorable.
you have the best ideas Debbie….this post reminds me of the 150 + rubber stamps I have in my closet upstairs…LOL…..
