Being a crafty person, I am very lucky to have friends who design fabulous products that I love to use! My Hugs and Kisses Kitchen Towels featuring, Ann Butler Designs faux quilting stamps and inks. When you make handmade gifts you can show everyone just how much they mean to you this Valentine’s Day!
Hugs and Kisses Kitchen Towels
To begin Hugs and Kisses Kitchen Towels, gather all supplies. Stamp a variety of the Background Basics Stamps along the bottom of the kitchen towels with Berry and Canyon inks, let dry. These large, 3″ square red rubber stamps are easy to line up to create the faux quilted band at the edge of the ombre kitchen towels with Ann’s patented stamp design.
Crafter’s Inks can be used on almost any surface, but are designed to work best on non-traditional surfaces like clay, metal, plastic, and fabric. I love mixing and matching the ink colors and the patterns of the Background Basics Stamps to create an eclectic quilted effect without having to sew.
Accent the faux quilted band with the zig-zag Stitch Stamps and Crafter’s Ink in Night. Stamp the stitches in a random and overlapping fashion to achieve a hand-sewn effect. To create a permanent design on the kitchen towels, heat set the dry ink with a craft iron (no steam) and a pressing cloth.
Apply the Joy iron-on, embroidered letters according to package directions with either a small craft iron or regular iron and a pressing cloth. Use XO and XO on the pair of kitchen towels to represent Hugs and Kisses or create a custom saying such as LOVE, KISS, or even BE MINE.
It’s as easy as that! A few supplies and 15 minutes is all it takes to create super cute Valentine’s Day Kitchen Towels with X’s and O’s can be made just in time to give (or keep) for Valentine’s Day!
