We re-used our polystyrene pineapple stencil for our tea towel print
Apply fabric paint to the print pad with a paint roller.
Press the print pad on to the tea towel and lift up.
Repeat with the same print pad or different print pads. You could use the same colour or make variations of similar shades like we did.
We used different shades of green and blue by mixing up blue, green, yellow, black and white fabric paint
Allow the fabric paint to dry.
Put a piece of paper over the finished tea towel and iron for several minutes to fix the fabric paint.
Iron the print to set the fabric paint
The tea towel can now be used, washed and ironed as usual.
