Easy Kids Crafts: Scarfed Potatoes
Make a pretty geometric scarf.
by Todd Oldham | October 21, 2011
It’s easy to make a potato printed tube scarf out of a cut-up T-shirt printed with Marimekko-inspired geometric patterns.
You will need:
- XXL shirt
- Fabric paint
Ask an adult to help you make your stamp by cutting the potato in half and then slicing a square form into the cut face. Remove the side pieces away from the square form by slicing inward along the side.
Cut across the tee shirt just under the sleeve and cut off the hem. Slide a piece of cardboard or foil inside the shirt to prevent the ink from going through to the other side.
Hold the round end of the potato stamp, place your stamp onto the fabric paint and stamp your pattern on the fabric. To “set” your printed design, follow the fabric paint’s instructions.
