Last year I made this potholder with my kids as a Mother’s Day gift for my mom. This is a fun and easy way to turn some of your kids’ artwork into a useful gift for grandma, mom, teachers or friends! Ink Effects paints are used like regular paint then transferred to fabric with an iron.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- White fabric
- Ink Effects paints and base spray (make sure your fabric is more than 30% cotton…mine was 50%)
- Paint brushes
- White printer paper
Trim the corners and threads and it’s all done. To package it up, I just put in a blue bowl with tongs and a new spoon that I’d painted on the ends.
Do you like the idea of a way to preserve some kids’ artwork? What are your plans for Mother’s Day?
