Here's how to create your own hand printed tea towel to brighten up your kitchen.
I visited the Norway fjords recently and loved the red ochre, mustard yellow and dark grey cabins scattered across the hillsides. I chose this colour palette for my tea towel and made a simple geometric rectangles print.

I used a foam craft sheet as my printing pad. You could print with anything e.g. polystyrene tray, rubber eraser, bubble wrap, potato shape etc.
When finished, iron the tea towel to set the fabric paint (or follow any specific instructions for your brand of paint). The tea towel should be able to be washed and ironed safely without damaging the print.
