How to Make

  1. Take the cotton tea towel out of its packaging and iron it to remove any creases.
  2. Dip a sponge dabber into some yellow textile paint, then print it onto the tea towel. Make sure you leave room at the top for your personalised message.
  3. Print more yellow circles onto the tea towel and leave them to dry.
  4. Mix some red and white textile paint together to make a shade of pink paint. Then dip a sponge dabber in the paint and print five circles around each yellow circle on the tea towel to create flowers.
  5. Once the paint has dried, take a blue fabric pen and write ‘TOP MUM’ or your choice of words at the top of the tea towel.
