Stenciled Napkin and Tea Towel
Source: The Martha Stewart Show, November 2010
Print stencil design one and two on thick card stock. Cut out stencil out with a craft knife. (For a stencil that can be saved and used repeatedly, trace the design to a sheet of acetate paper or clear transparency paper with a permanent marker.)
Pre-wash napkins and towels and iron out creases. Place stencil on fabric and secure with masking tape.
Pour a small amount of fabric paint on a plate. Dab a stencil brush into paint, then dab paint on material with firm tamping movements. Try not to smear the paint around as if with a regular paintbrush, as it will bleed paint under stencil and create a messy design.
Gently peel off the stencil. Allow paint to dry. Fix paint with an iron, as directed by paint manufacturer's instructions.
