Thumbprint "Cookies" Tea Towel

107K Views
This year my kids and I wanted to make a special Mother's Day gift for their grandma. Since they like to bake together, we decided to go with a baking theme. We turned an inexpensive flour sack towel into a super cute tea towel as part of her gift.
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $5.00 Difficulty: Easy

First I found a cute quote about baking and typed it up. I printed it out and laid it underneath the tea towel. (If you would like a copy of the quote, you can download it on my blog for free.)

Next I used Sharpie fabric markers to trace over the quote. It was really easy to see the text through the towel, thank goodness! I never would have been able to replicate that text or spacing on my own!

My kids stamped their thumbprints all around the quote using a light brown fabric paint. After the paint dried, we used a black fabric marker to add dots to those thumbprints, turning them into chocolate chip cookies!
