Kids Fashion Print Scarf – Todd Oldham’s craft ideas for homemade gifts

Make a pretty geometric scarf.

By Todd Oldham |

It’s easy to make a potato printed tube scarf out of a cut-up T-shirt printed with Marimekko-inspired geometric patterns.

  • XXL shirt
  • Potato
  • Fabric paint
  • Scissors
  • Knife
  • Easy Kids Crafts: Scarfed Potatoes

    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.

    Hi again, Todd and

    My name is Bethany Marcello, and I work for the yet-to-be-launched – a crafting and social networking site. We’re putting together some great stuff for our upcoming launch, featuring everything from quilting to sewing to crafting and baking.

    One of our writers came across this picture of the stamped scarf and was wondering if you would grant us permission to use it? We’d give you a link to your site.

    Thanks for your consideration!
